  the egg mixture, ending with flour.  Pour the batter into 3 8-inch
  cake pans that have been well greased and floured.  Bake in a
  preheated 350 degree F. oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until a cake
  tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans for
  5 minutes; turn out on racks to cool completely. SYRUP: Make syrup by
  mixing together sugar and water and boiling for 5 minutes. When syrup
  has cooled, stir in kirsch. Prick the cake layers and pour syrup over
  all 3 layers. FILLING: To make the butter-cream filling, beat
  together sugar and butter until well blended. Add egg yolk; beat
  until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Fold in Kirsch. CAKE
  ASSEMBLY: To assemble cake, place 1 layer on a cake plate.  Spread
  with butter cream filling.  Using 3/4 cup of the cherries, which have
  been patted dry, drop cherries evenly over cream.  Place second layer
  on cake. Repeat. Place third layer on top.  Fold 2 T confectioners'
  sugar into the whipped cream. Cover the sides and top of the cake
  with whipped cream. Decorate top of cake with remaining 1/2 cup
  cherries. To make chocolate curls from chocolate bar, shave (at room
  temperature) with a vegetable peeler. Refrigerate curls until ready
  to use. Press chocolate curls on sides of cake and sprinkle a few on
  the top. Chill until serving time.
