for 2-3 minutes, until light and fluffy. scrape down the sides of the 
bowl. in five parts, slowly add the eggs, mixing web after each addition.

spatula, in six parts, alternately stir the flour mixture and cocoa 
mixture into the butter mixture. do not overmix! scrape batter into 
prepared pans. bake at 350 for about 50-60 minutes (if using the 10"x3" 
pan.) or 20-30 minutes if using the smaller pans. when done, cool for 10 
minutes, then invert onto a wire rack and let cool completely. wrap cake

water. melt the chocolate, stirring until smooth. remove the double boiler 
from the heat. in a heatproof bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold 
water and stir to soften. place the bowl over a saucepan of hot water and 
stir constantly to dissolve. remove the bowl from heat. in a mixer bowl,

cold. stir the warm sugar syrup (save leftover syrup) into the warm 
dissolved gelatin. quickly mix in the warm chocolate. stir the mixture

bottom layer of cake. then spread half of the chocolate mousse on that 
layer. repeat this process with the middle layer (on another plate or 
cardboard circle). refrigerate both layers if chocolate mousse is still 
soft. place middle layer on top of the bottom layer, then place top layer 
on top. 
 
frosting: cream shortening until soft and creamy. gradually add in 
remaining ingredients and beat until well-mixed and creamy. (use enough 
milk to make an adequate spreading consistency). frost the outside of the
