Force cheese through a sieve into a bowl and beat smooth. Chop chocolate into fine bits in a blender. Mix chocolate bits with liqueur and jam. Spread the base layer of cake with a portion of the cheese; then spread cheese with a portion of jam mixture. Repeat these layers until all mixtures are used up ending top layer with plain cake.
