1 lb White chocolate; chopped
2 c Heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 10 inch cake pan. Sift together
flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder. Beat eggs yolks, lemon juice, and
1/2 cup sugar until fluffy. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with 2 tbs.
sugar until stiff peaks are formed. Mix egg yolk mixture with flour
mixture. Gently fold egg whites into batter just until combined. Pour into
cake pan and bake for 20 to 25 mins., or until the cake is springy to the
touch. Remove from pan and cool. Refrigerate for 4 or more hours. You will
want a total of four cake layers, so judge approximately the top fourth of
the cake and cut horizontally. Take the remaining piece and cut out a
circle in the following manner: with a paring knife, angle all around the
cake and remove the center piece. This piece should be wider at the bottom
than at the top. Cut in half horizontally. You should now have 4 pieces of
cake. Take the circle that is one quarter the size of the total cake and
place it on a platter. Set the outer ring (hollowed out in circle) on top.
Sprinkle dark rum on inside of ring. Fill the cake with White Chocolate
Mousse. Place the larger or bottom piece of the circle with angled edges
on top of the White Chocolate Mousse so that the wider part is on the
bottom. Place a filling of Dark Chocolate Cream on top of the cake,
reserving enough to cover the sides and top layer. Cover the layer of Dark
Chocolate Cream with the smaller, or top piece of circle with angled edges
so that the wider part is on the bottom. Smooth remaining Dark Chocolate
Cream on sides and top of cake. Cover with shaved chocolate and serve.
WHITE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE: Melt chocolate in double-boiler. Whip heavy cream
and set aside. Whip egg whites with sugar until they form soft peaks. Fold
chocolate, heavy cream, and egg white mixtures together. Add rum and
cookies and mix well. DARK CHOCOLATE CREAM: Melt chocolate in
double-boiler. Remove from heat. Whip cream until stiff. Add rum and
orange zest to chocolate. Whip in cream with wire whisk until it is
smooth.
