Preheat the oven to 180 ºC (350 ºF). Grease a large 30 cm cake tin or two 20 cm cake tins with butter or margarine. Mix cocoa, sour cream and eggs until smooth. Sift together the cake flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Whisk the butter and castor sugar together until light and creamy. Add the dry ingredients and mix. Fold in the cocoa mixture and vanilla essence. Turn the batter into the prepared tin(s). Bake for about 40 minutes or until done. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Slowly bring the cream to boil, add the chocolate and stir until all the chocolate has melted and the mixture thickens. Cool slightly. If making two cakes, sandwich the two layers with the icing and cover the cake with the remaining icing.
