Place the pan in the center of a cold oven (do not preheat). Turn the oven on to 325 degrees F.. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour and 35 minutes. Since all ovens are different, be sure to start checking the cake's progress after about 1 hour and 10 minutes to see if it's done.

Turn the cake out onto a wire rack to finish cooling. Be sure to cool completely before icing or the icing will slide right off of the cake.

Heat the cream in a heavy-bottomed saucepan just until bubbling. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips and stir until chips are melted and icing is smooth. Let cool for 2-3 minutes.
