Notes

Butter for the icing needs to be room temperature, not melted.
You can use different wafers for the cake, if you prefer Hazelnut, etc.
Do not overbake the chocolate cake or it will crumble.
Allow the cake to fully cool before removing from the pan.
Optionally, you could slice each cake into 2 pieces, for more layers, I did not.
