  6. Divide batter evenly between prepared pans.
  7. Bake until a cake taster comes out clean, for about 30 - 35 min.
  8. Transfer pans to wire racks to cool then remove the cakes onto racks to cool completely.
  9. For the chocolate mousse, put the marshmallows, butter, chocolate, water and coffee powder into a heat-proof bowl. Set the bowl over simmering water, stirring occasionally, until you have a smooth homogeneous mixture. Set aside to cool.
  10. Whip the cream until thick, and then fold it into cooling chocolate mixture.
  11. Assembling the cake: put the first cake layer inside of a removable ring, then poor half of the chocolate mousse, then the second layer of cake and then the remaining chocolate mousse. Refrigerate over night or at least 4 hours.
  12. Remove the ring and decorate with cocoa and chocolate chips, or as you like ;-).
