  • Place chopped white chocolate in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes.

  • Cream sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until fluffy. Add 4 egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in vanilla extract and melted chocolate.

  • Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in another bowl. Blend into butter mixture, alternating with buttermilk, beating well after each addition.

  • Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff; fold into batter. Pour batter evenly into the prepared cake pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of each layer comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • Combine melted white chocolate, confectioners' sugar, hot water, butter, egg yolks, vanilla extract, and salt in a mixing bowl; beat into a smooth icing using an electric mixer.

  • Place 1 cake layer on a serving plate. Cover with some frosting and another cake layer. Repeat once more. Frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining icing.
