    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 23x33 cm tin and set aside.
    2. In a medium bowl, sift together the sorghum, tapioca and rice flours with the cocoa powder, xanthan gum, baking powder and bicarb soda.
    3. In a large mixer bowl, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in the brown and white sugars; whip until fluffy. Beat in the eggs and egg yolks one at a time. Add the vanilla. On low speed, alternately combine the buttermilk with the flour mixture. Pour batter into prepared tin.
    4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool in tin.
    5. To make the icing, in the top of a double boiler over medium high heat, melt the chocolate chips (or use microwave). Remove from heat and cool until warm. Stir in the sour cream and vanilla; add thickened cream. Stir in additional thickened cream to make desired consistency. Once the cake is thoroughly cool, spread a thin layer of icing over the top.
