Beat the yolks with the remaining sugar until light and creamy. Add them to the whipped egg whites and mix gently with a spoon. Then add the flour in 2-3 batches, mixing gently with a spoon after each addition.
Put the dough in a 24 cm diameter springform mold lined with baking paper (bottom only) and level it. Cook for approximately 50 minutes.
When the cake is completely cooled, cut it horizontally into 3 sponge cakes. Soak each sponge cake with a little liqueur, spread two of them with heated apricot jam and sprinkle with cinnamon. Place a sponge cake coated with jam in a springform mold and close the ring.
Mix the ground cheese with the sugar, vanilla sugar, liqueur and cinnamon.

Spread half of the prepared cream over the biscuits in the springform pan, cover with the second sponge cake coated with jam and spread the other half of the cream. Place the third disk of dough on top, press lightly with your hand and place the cake in the refrigerator for at least 60 minutes
Whip the cream with the scoop, reserve some for decoration, spread the rest over the top and sides of the cake. Press rosettes of cream along the edge of the cake, decorate it with cherries and chocolate chips, sprinkle the sides with crocant or almond pieces.
