  1. Cake: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 3 (9 x 1 1/2-inch) round pans.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat brown sugar, butter and whipping cream over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted. Divide among pans; spread evenly. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
  3. For cake batter, beat cake flour, sugar, sour cream, shortening, water, baking soda, salt, vanilla extract, baking powder, eggs and melted baking chocolate in large bowl of an electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Pour batter over pecans in pans; spread evenly.
  4. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, staggering cake pans in oven on middle racks for even heat flow. Cake layers are done when top springs back when touched lightly. Cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Turn upside down onto wire racks; let pans sit for a few minutes before removing pans. Cool completely.
  6. Place one layer, pecan side up, on cake plate. Spread with a third of the Whipped Cream Topping. Repeat with remaining layers. Garnish top of cake with a circle of pecan halves. Store covered in the refrigerator.
