Beat egg yolks slightly, add small amount of hot mixture slowly to the egg yolks, stirring rapidly. Stir the egg mixture into the hot sauce in the pan. Cook, stirring constantly over very low heat for 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat. Add rind and chill. Place bottom layer of cake of heatproof platter or baking sheet and spread with 1/3 of filling. Repeat with remaining layers and filling, ending with the top of cake.
