Pour cake batter evenly in the cake pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the chocolate cake comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool down completely.
For Chocolate Whipped Cream
In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Using a standing mixer with a whisk attachment, whip on medium until stiff peaks. This will take 4-5 minutes.
Keep the whipped cream in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Repeat the 3 layers & finally top with some generous amount of grated chocolate.
Then chill the cake jar for at least 1 to 2 hours for the flavours to infuse.
