Combine the hot water and instant coffee. Allow to cool.

Whisk the cream until soft peaks form then fold in the coffee and sugar. Stir lightly to avoid the cream curdling.

Arrange the biscuits onto a plate, to form a ring. Brush lightly with brandy. Grate dark chocolate over the cake. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
