Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 4 - 8 inch cake pans by lightly spraying with baking spray, putting in a circle of parchment on the bottom of the pan, and then lightly spraying again with baking spray.
2
Mix chocolate cake batter by combining all ingredients and mixing on medium speed for 2-3 minutes, or until fully combined. Pour into pans, tap pans on counter several times to release bubbles, and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs.
3
Mix together yellow cake batter by combining the cake mix, eggs, milk, and oil on medium for 3 minutes. Pour into prepared pans and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until tester comes out with moist crumbs.
4
Let all cakes cool completely, and then cut two circles out of each cake, and reassemble in alternating colors.
5
While cakes are cooling, mix up the filling by putting all filling ingredients into a mixing bowl and beating on high speed for several minutes, stopping as needed to scrape the sides of the bowl.
6
Place 1/3 of the filling mixture between each layer.
7
Make ganache by heating the cream, butter, and vanilla until simmering. Pour hot cream over chocolate chips and stir until melted and glossy. Let cool for about 5 minutes, stirring periodically, and then pour over the cake. Spread the ganache evenly over the top and over the sides of the cake.
8
Mix icing ingredients together, and place small dollops on the top of the cake. Using a butter knife, gently drag through the chocolate and the blobs to create a marbled pattern on top.
