1-¼ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
¼ cup butter, cubed

1 cup heavy whipping cream
½ cup confectioners' sugar

Directions: 1. Let eggs stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Line three 9-inch round baking pans with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the water, oil, egg yolks and melted chocolate. Add to dry ingredients; beat until well blended. In another bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.

4. In a large saucepan, combine filling ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Chill for 2 hours or until filling reaches spreading consistency, stirring occasionally. Beat with a mixer until fluffy.

5. Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate; top with a fifth of the filling. Repeat layers.

6. For frosting, in a large bowl, beat the cream, confectionersâ�,��"� sugar and cocoa until stiff peaks form. Spread over top and sides of cake. Garnish with chocolate curls.
