Preparation


Step 1

Line three greased 9-in. round baking pans with waxed paper. Grease waxed paper and set aside.

Step 2

In small saucepan, melt chocolate with water over low heat; cool.

Step 3

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 4 egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in melted chocolate and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition.

Step 4

In a small mixing bowl and with clean beaters, beat the 4 egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold a fourth of the egg whites into the creamed mixture; fold in remaining whites.


Step 5

Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Step 6

Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.


Frosting


Step 1

In a small saucepan, heat the sugar, milk, butter and egg yolks over medium-low heat until mixture is thickened and golden brown, stirring constantly.

Step 2

Remove from the heat. Stir in the coconut, pecans and vanilla extract. Cool until thick enough to spread. Spread a third of the frosting over each cake layer and stack the layers. Melt chocolate with shortening, stirring until smooth; drizzle down sides of cake.
