  9. Preparing the filling.
  10. Cut nuts with a knife.
  11. Soak prunes in warm water for 15-20 minutes, then strain and cut into small straws.
  12. Poppy pour boiling water and let it brew for 20-25 minutes.
  13. Drain the water along with the poppy seeds on the gauze, which must be put in a colander, and allow to settle until the poppy dries completely. Dry the poppy mixed with sugar.
  14. On the rolled dough we put in turn the prepared stuffing. There will be 9 logs with prunes, 9 logs with nuts, 10 logs with poppy seeds.
  15. Fold the tubes and bake in a preheated to 180 degrees oven for 15 minutes.
  16. We make the cream: put the sour cream on the gauze, which is covered with a colander, and leave it for 5-6 hours in a cold place, so that excess serum leaves.
  17. Prepared sour cream to beat with sugar.
  18. We take a big dish, we lubricate the bottom with cream.
  19. We begin to build a hut: we put the first 7 logs with different fillings and grease sour cream.
  20. Then 6 logs are sour cream, and so on until the logs run out.
  21. The whole cake should be covered with sour cream.
  22. We beat the squirrels, decorate them with the side parts of the hut.
  23. Sprinkle the top with grated chocolate.

The cake should be infused for 24 hours so that it soaks well. We serve to the table, cutting off each guest in a piece! Everyone will be delighted! The taste is inexpressible. Take my word for it, you will not find such a recipe on the Internet. It's exclusive!
