How to prepare the recipe: "Chocolate glazed cake":

In the meantime, lets make the zabaione: beat the yolks with the sugar, add the flour, the Moscato and the Marsala. Cover with a cloth and put in the fridge. In another bowl make the chocolate glaze, beating the eggs with the icing sugar, then add the butter and the chocolate previously melted.
Get the sponge cake and sprinkle it with the Grand Marnier. Get a serving plate, place the first biscuit disc and spread a layer of zabaione, then place on the sponge cake disk, spread another layer of zabaione and finish with the second biscuit disc. Spread the chocolate glaze over and around the cake. Decorate as you like.

Chef's advice
When you make the chocolate glaze, to avoid that the melted chocolate hardens immediately, put the bowl over a pan filled with hot water.
I suggest to serve this cake with white grappa.
