Divide batter evenly between the prepared pans.
Bake for 30 minutes until a knife inserted in the cakes comes out clean.

Allow the cakes to cool in the pans, then invert them onto wire racks to cool completely.

For the frosting, in a large bowl beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Add cocoa, vanilla, salt and beat until combined. Add powdered sugar with some heavy cream and beat until combined. Continue adding heavy cream while beating until smooth and spreadable.

Place one cake in your serving platter and spread some buttercream. 

Place the next cake and spread some buttercream.
Place the third cake and spread the rest of the buttercream on the sides and on top.

Place in the refrigerator to chill. 

Before serving leave the cake at room temperature for a few minutes.
You can keep the cake in the refrigerator for 3-4 days covered with plastic wrap.
