   To make the angel food: Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cut parchment paper or
   wax paper to fit the bottom of a 10 inch round cake pan.  Do not grease
   the pan or paper.
   Sift together the flour and confectioner’s sugar.  Set aside.
   Place egg whites in bowl of a heavy duty mixer.  Beat slowly while adding
   the salt and cream of tartar; then continue beating for 1 minute or until
   soft peak form.  Increase speed to medium ; add sugar by Tablespooons
   until it is all incorporated, then beat 1 1/2 minutes longer.  When egg
   whites have stiff peaks, add vanilla and almond extracts.
   Remove bowl from mixer and sprinkle half of the confectioners' sugar-flour
   mixture over the egg whites.   Fold in with a rubber spatula; sprinkle
   with remaining with remaining sugar-flour mixture and fold again using a
   minimum number of strokes so that the egg white do not deflate. Gently
   spoon the mixture into prepared pan and bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until
   golden brown.  Do not overbake or the cake will sink in the center.
   To make the devil’s food:  Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a
   round 10-inch cake pan.
   Sift cocoa into a mixing bowl, then drizzle in the coffee while whisking
   to make a smooth paste.  Set aside.
   Combine shortening, sugar, vanilla and eggs, and beat for 2 minutes at
   medium speed.
   In a separate bowl, sift togethr the flour, salt, baking powder and baking
   Alternately add the cocoa-coffee mixture and flour mixture to the
   sugar-egg mixture and continue beating until incorporated.  Pour batter
   into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes.
   To assemble cake:  When both cakes have cooled, carefully slice them in
   half horizontally with a sharp serrated knife (the longer the better) so
   that you have 4 cake layers.
   To slice the angel food cake, spray knife with oil.  Holding the top of
   the cake with your flat open hand, use a sawing action to slice through.
   Do not put pressure on the knife or the cake might tear; just let the
   sawwing action do its work. (If the cake sinks in the center, fill it in
   with some extra mousse.  Make this the top layer and it will be easier to
   level off)
   Place 1 layer on the devil’s food cake on a plate and spoon a third of the
   Peanut Butter Mousse on top.  Add a layer of the devil’s food cake on a
   plate and spoon a third of the Peanut Butter Mousse on top.  Add a layer
   of the angel food , then spread with another third of the mousse.  Add
   second devil’s food layer, then reamining mouse.  Top with remaining angel
   food layer.
   Whisk the Ganache, then spread over the cake with a spaaatual, frosting
   the top and sides generously.  Refrigerate for a least 2 hours before
   serving.  Served chilled, slice with a warm wet knife.
