3. When you get the right consistency, remove it from the heat and add olive oil. Cover it and keep it inside the refrigerator overnight.

Assemble The Cake

1. Take a bowl and whisk all the ingredients, except the mango pieces, to make whipped cream.

2. Cut the cake into layers and place one layer on the serving plate. Spread mango curd well on the layer and then layer it with some whipped cream.
