Cut cake crosswise into thirds. Use one of them as a base and wet slightly with the syrup. Cover the sponge cake base with chocolate mousse and top with another layer of cake. Wet cake with the syrup and cover with apricot jam. Place the latest layer of sponge cake on top,  wet slightly with the syrup and cover with chocolate mousse.
