  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.
