IngredientsI know this is weird, but there is method to this madness with the ingredients.

6 egg whites
3/4 tsp cream of tarter
1/2 cup sugar
6 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup cocoa

1 1/2 cups soft butter
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon orange rind
4 cups icing sugar
2 egg yolks

Garnish, chocolate curls, and orange slices optional but recommended for maximum deliciousness and viewer enjoyment.

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar to stiff but moist peaks. Gradually add 1/2 cup of sugar till the peaks are stiff and shinny. This is your meringue.

Beat the egg yolks and the 3/4 cup of sugar in a mixer on high power until they are thick and lemony looking (approx 5 minutes). Gradually beat in the orange juice and rind on low speed. Sift together the flour and cocoa and then fold it in gently into the egg yolk mix. Transfer to a larger bowl and fold in 1/4 of the meringue, then gradually fold in the rest of the meringue. Divide the whole mix into 3 NOT greased 8 inch round pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 35-45 minutes. Allow them to cool completely.

Beat butter, orange juice and rind until creamy. Gradually add the icing and yolks, beating until smooth.

Cut the round cakes into 1/2 horizontally so you have 6 layers of cake. Frost the cake such that there is frosting between each layer and on the top and sides. Decorate with your garnish!
