Measure out 3 cups of cream, take about 2 tbsp out, warm a little and mix in a small bowl with the instant coffee.
Put the coffee-cream mixture in the fridge to cool
Whip the remaining cream with the sugar until soft peaks form then and add the vanilla and coffee mixture.
Beat until stiff peaks formNote: The coffee flavour will mellow as it sits
Get out your cake plate and put about half a cup of the cream on the bottom, trying to keep it away from the edge
Make a circle of 7 or 8 wafer cookies and then put a few in the middle, I used my broken ones for the centres
Repeat until your cream is used up. I got 7 layers
Top with something crunchy and something sweet! I like to set mine aside for an our at least so that it all melds together
