I made this Choc Mousse Cake last night for a friend’s birthday today. As it turned out it probably wasn’t the best night for making a chocolate mousse. It was a really warm day in Melbourne yesterday and my kitchen was still around 30 degrees at 8pm. The mousse wouldn’t thicken. I had to wrap the cake and put it in the fridge to set. Having faith that it had all worked out, I brought it to work without unwrapping to check it. When I opened it up it looked good. It looked perfect when I sliced it to share with my friend and colleagues.
The recipe is really just a mix of other recipes. I made a basic chocolate cake, the mousse and then just layered the cake and spread the mousse in between the two layers and on top.
