In a saucepan add the apricot jam and place at medium-low heat. Leave until it gets a little warm so that it takes on a more liquid texture. With the help of a layer cake cutter, cut the cake in half.
Fill the inside with 3/4 of the jam.
Cover the other half with sponge cake and brush all over the outside with the remaining jam. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
In a bowl add chopped chocolate and butter, set aside. In a saucepan pour the cream and heat to medium-low heat. Remove the heat and pour over the chocolate. Let stand for 2-3 minutes and stir until a homogeneous and very bright mixture is obtained.
Using a spatula, cover the entire surface with a thin layer of chocolate ganache. We will try to leave it as smooth as possible. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes so that this outer layer hardens.
Temperate lightly, in a water bath, the chocolate glaze and pour over the cake.
Let the excess drain for a few minutes.
Using a spatula, we remove the cake from the rack and transfer it to a stand.
Decorate with ganache cream and dried apricots. Serve.
