  6. Whip until soft but slightly firm peaks are formed.  
  7. Pour the room temperature egg yolks all at once into the egg whites.  
  8. Ladle 1/4 of the egg base into the melted chocolate. Stir until homogeneous. Fold in the balance of the whipped egg mixture.  
  9. Divide the batter evenly between 6 cookie sheets. Bake 3 at a time for 8 minutes. Turn, and continue to bake for 3-4 minutes.  
  10. Remove from oven and cool.  
  11. Whip the heavy cream until soft peaks are formed.  
  12. Over a double boiler, in a medium size mixing bowl, combine the milk chocolate and bittersweet chocolate. Stir until melted and reserve.  
  13. Over a double boiler, whip together the yolks, eggs and sugar. When it reaches 110 degrees F., remove from heat.  
  14. Fold 1/3 of the egg mixture into the melted chocolate. Fold the balance of the egg mixture until homogeneous. Fold in the heavy cream.  
  15. Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil in a small saucepan. Reserve.  
  16. To assemble the cake: Line the presentation tray with a cake layer. Brush with coffee syrup. Top with chocolate mousse. With a metal offset spatula, "schmear" evenly. Continue layering with balance of cake and mousse.
