  A rich, luscious dessert from the famous Il Cantoncino Restaurante in
  Prepare Sponge Cake.  Prepare Custard Cream.  Prepare Coffee
  Zabaglione. Cream butter in a large bowl until pale and fluffy.
  Gradually add cooled zabaglione to butter, beating vigorously after
  each addition. Refrigerate mixture 2 to 3 minutes to stiffen
  slightly. Whip cream and refrigerate. Preheat oven to 200F (95C). Put
  chocolate into a small ovenproof bowl and place in oven until
  chocolate has melted, 4 to 5 minutes. Cut cake into 2 layers.
  Sprinkle rum over 2 cut surfaces of cake. Spread 1 layer with Custard
  Cream.  Top with second layer.  Spread zabaglione mixture evenly over
  top of cake.  Hold cake in 1 hand and spread zabaglione mixture
  around sides of cake.  Gently press walnuts onto sides of cake. Put
  whipped cream into a pastry bag fitted with a medium star tube. Pipe
  a cream border around edge of cake.  Decorate center of cake with 9
  cream rosettes. Dip almonds into melted chocolate and place on top of
  rosettes. Refrigerate cake until serving.  Cake can be prepared up to
  24 hours ahead. Let cake stand 30 minutes at room temperature before
  serving. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
  SPONGE CAKE: Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Butter and flour a 10-inch
  cake pan with a removable bottom; shake off excess flour. Melt butter
  in a small saucepan; cool slightly.  Put eggs, sugar and vanilla in a
  large bowl. Set bowl in a larger one containing hot water or use a
  double boiler off the heat.  Beat at high speed 10 to 12 minutes or
  until mixture is pale and thick and has tripled in volume.  Sift
  flour over batter in several batches, gently folding in with a
  spatula after each addition. Gradually add cooled butter, folding
  gently until well blended. Pour batter into prepared pan.  Cook 20 to
  25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center of cake comes
  out dry. Cool cake in pan 20 to 30 minutes, then transfer to a rack.
  Cake can be prepared 1 or 2 days ahead, covered with plastic wrap and
  stored at room temperature.
  CUSTARD CREAM: In a medium saucepan, bring milk just to a boil. Put
  egg yolks, sugar and vanilla into a medium bowl. Beat 2 to 3 minutes
  until mixture is pale and thick. Gradually beat in flour. Very slowly
  stir half the hot milk into yolk mixture. Pour mixture into pan
  containing remaining hot milk.  Whisk over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes
  or until custard has a medium-thick consistency. Do not let mixture
  boil. Place custard in bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
  COFFEE ZABAGLIONE: In a large bowl or the top part of a double
  boiler, beat egg yolk and sugar until pale and thick. Set bowl or top
  part of double boiler over simmering water; do not let water boil.
  Gradually add coffee, beating constantly. Continue beating until
  zabaglione has doubled in volume and is soft and fluffy, 4 to 6
  minutes. Remove from heat and set pan or bowl over a bowl full of ice
  water. Stir with a whisk until mixture has cooled.
