Question about cart module inside top menu

Hello,

Can you please help me with hooks manager module and tutorial about moving block cart to top menu ? I followed this steps:

  1. Created new hook
  2. module directory../themes/your- theme/modules/blocktopmenu/blocktopmenu.tpl.
  3. main module .php file: /modules/blockcart/blockcart.php.
  4. Now our block cart module is ready to support hook that we created inside block top menu module. As you probably noticed block cart module uses new template file "blockcart-menu.tpl". Create it inside module directory with these contents: 

(that is where i am confused (step 4).. must i take the code of /modules/blockcart/blockcart-menu.tpl (on my system its blockcart.tpl no menu) and paste it /themes/your- theme/modules/blockcart/blockcart.tpl together with the code given?

Confused.. Please help..

I hope this makes sense.

Kind regards 
Helen
