  1. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Melt some chocolate and mix it with butter in a small bowl.
  3. Take a separate bowl and mix flour, baking powder, eggs and salt into it. You can add the remaining dry ingredients at this stage too.
  4. Now, combine both mixtures together and bake them into the oven for about 40 minutes in order to get the desired result. While the cake bakes, prepare filling, syrup, chocolate frosting and topping.
  5. Mix all the ingredients available for filling and beat them together properly. Allow the mixture to cool down and once it thickens, it will be ready to be used with the baked cake.
  6. In order to prepare the syrup, you will have to heat sugar and water in a saucepan for a few minutes. Once the sugar gets dissolved, remove the pan from the heat and pour in rum to get the syrup you desire.
  7. Heat the chocolate bits, corn syrup, butter and cream until the come to a boil. Stir until it becomes smooth and allow the mixture to cool down.
  8. Distribute the cake into layers and spread the syrup on the base of your cake. Add the filling into all layers and then spread the frosting on top.
  9. Finally, you can ice the cake and then freeze it overnight to eat it the next day.
