Double Chocolate Bombe

8 to 10 servings
* 1/2 cup pecan pieces, toasted
* 1/4 cup butter, softened
* 1/4 cup shortening
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 3 large eggs, separated
* 1 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 cup buttermilk
* Chocolate Mousse
* White Chocolate Mousse
* Chocolate Ganache
* Garnish: chocolate curls

Process pecans in a food processor until ground; set aside.

Beat butter and shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add vanilla, beating until blended. Add egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition.

Combine flour, soda, and pecans; add to sugar mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed until blended after each addition.

Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Pour into a well-greased and floured 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan.

Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan, and cool on wire rack.

Line a 3-quart mixing bowl (8 1/2 inches across) with plastic wrap.

Cut cake lengthwise into 2-inch strips; line prepared bowl with cake strips, reserving remainder. Spread Chocolate Mousse over cake in bowl; cover and chill 1 hour.

Pour White Chocolate Mousse into bowl over chocolate layer; cover and chill 1 hour. Cover with remaining strips. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.

Invert bombe onto a cake plate, and spread with ganache. Garnish, if desired.
