  8. Spread the dough into the cake pan. The dough should be about 1/2" thick (if you have excess dough use it to make cookies)
  9. Bake until the middle of the cookie puffs up a little and then collapses
  10. Cool completely in the pan
  11. Flip the pan over and bang one edge of the pan a couple of times. The cookie should loosen and fall out
  12. Set aside at room temperature until ready to assemble the cake

Bake the Cake
  1. Line two 8" or 9" cake pans with parchment rounds
  2. Toss the chocolate chips with the tablespoon of water until moistened. Sprinkle the ap flour over the chips and toss to distribute the flour. Set the chips aside while you make the cake batter
  3. Mix the Vanilla Butter Cake according to the recipe, folding the chocolate chips into the batter just before the whipped egg whites
  4. Pour 1/3 of the batter into one pan and 2/3 of the batter into the other pan
  5. Spread the batter evenly and bake until the cake springs back when lightly pressed
  6. Cool the cakes in the pans for 5 minutes
  7. Run a small spatula around the cakes and remove them from the pans
  8. Cool the cakes completely
  9. Wrap each cake in plastic and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight (see note 1)

Make the Brown Sugar Buttercream
  1. Make the Italian Meringue Buttercream according to the recipe. Mix in the molasses at the end
  2. Divide the buttercream in 1/2, reserve one 1/2 for icing the cake, use the remaining for filling

Assemble the Cake
  1. Make the rum Simple Syrup according to the recipe
  2. Trim the sides and top of both cake layers to remove excess brown edges. Split the larger cake in two, horizontally, you will now have a total of three cake layers
  3. Place the chocolate chip cookie layer on a serving platter or cardboard cake circle
  4. Spread the ganache evenly over the cookie
  5. Place one of the cake layers on the cookie
  6. Brush the layer generously with rum syrup
  7. Spread 1/2 of the buttercream reserved for the filling onto the cake layer
  8. Place another cake layer, sprinkle with syrup and spread with remaining filling
  9. Top with the last cake layer and sprinkle that layer with syrup
  10. If the cookie base is bigger than the cake layers you can trim the cookie so its even with the cake layers
  11. Crumb coat the cake with a thin layer of buttercream and chill until the crumb coat is set
  12. Ice with a final coating of buttercream, reserving a little buttercream for decoration.
  13. Pipe a border around the top edge of the cake and decorate with mini chocolate chips
  14. The cake will keep at room temperature for several days

Notes

1-You can use the cake as soon as it cools to room temperature, but it's easier to trim and split when it's cold. 2-All the components of the cake can be made ahead and refrigerated or frozen until ready to assemble.
