      Preheat oven to 350.  Line bottoms of two 9-inch round
   cake pans with waxed paper.  Grease paper and sides of
   pans.  Dust with flour.
      Mix flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.  In another
   bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar at
   medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time,
   beating well after each addition.  Add vanilla.
      At low speed, alternately beat flour mixture and
   buttermilk into butter mixture just until blended.  Divide
   batter equally between prepared pans. Bake cakes until a
   toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25 to 30
   minutes.  Transfer pans to wire racks to cool for 10
   minutes.  Turn out onto racks.  Remove paper.  Turn layers
   topsides up and cool completely.
       To prepare frosting, beat butter and confectioners'
   sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy.  Add melted
   chocolate and vanilla; continue beating until shiny and
   smooth. Place 1 cake layer on a serving plate; spread with
   frosting.  Top with remaining cake layer.  Spread frosting
   on tip and sides of cake.  Let cake stand for at least 30
   minutes before sprinkling with chocolate shavings and
