Instructions 

#1
Beat eggs (no need to separate them) with sugar until it’s three times in volume. Sift flour together with cacao. Using a spatula, fold in flour by thirds; be very gentle with dough, so you don't over mix it and lose the fluffiness. Place dough into 9 inch pan. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes, check it with a wooden toothpick. If the cake is ready, dough should not stick to the toothpick.
#2
Once the cake cools, cut the cake into three or four slices.
#3
Soak the slices with whipping cream and liqueur combined together; set it aside.
#4
Melt chocolate chip with in a microwave, stir chocolate every few seconds not to overcook. Whip together chocolate, butter and condensed milk. Whip until well combined.
#5
In a separate bowl, whisk very cold heavy whipping cream until soft peaks. Fold in chocolate butter mixture into whipped cream.
#6
Place a layer of cake on a plate, cover with cream, repeat until you ran out of cake layers. Using the remaining cream, decorate the outside of the cake.
#7
Dust sides of the cake with cacao powder and some shredded chocolate or decorate as you wish.
