Buy some chocolate ripple biscuit whip the cream with abit of vanilla essence and sandwich the biscuits together with the cream forming a log and save some cream once all the biscuits are done and smooth cream around the biscuits let it sit in the fridge for a few hours until the biscuit is softened a hit in my house

You could still do the sponge cake idea, but make chocolate ganache to fill it and top it!!! Yum! Also left over ganache (or on cake) actually freezes really well.
Basic recipe is about 200ml cream (cold) to about 100ml melted (tempered) dark chocolate. Just double quantities etc if needed, but keep this 2:1 ratio.
Easiest way to temper choc is to boil water in a kettle. Once boiled pour into large bowl, sit another bowl inside the larger bowl (in the hot water), put broken up pieces of choc in the smaller bowl and let it melt. Stir as required.
To make the ganache put the cold milk in a mixing bowl, pour the melted choc into the cream, use a handheld electric beater to mix the choc into the cream. Beat for a couple of minutes until a spreadable cream consistency (no longer runny).
It's now ready to spread on a cake or use to fill. Left overs can be sealed in plastic container and frozen (not sure how long it will keep). Let defrost in fridge or kitchen bench until spreadable again.
It's yum! Plus you can add some drops of flavoring if desired (eg. Peppermint, orange).

Cream freezes ok for cooked things like stews etc.
You could make like a pastry cream type thing - custard and whipped cream together (I know that's not a true pastry cream) and put it in a tart then top with berries.
