Chocolate Mousse Cake

Chocolate Mousse Cake I
Originally uploaded by Cakelaw

Tomorrow is my colleague Rob's birthday. As with most people at work, I know that Rob likes chocolate. Accordingly, continuing with my series of chocolate cakes, I have made Rob a chocolate mousse cake, inspired by Habeas Brulee's chocolate mousse cake. However, I only followed her recipe for the base chocolate cakes.

For the mousse filling, I halved the mousse recipe used by A Cat in the Kitchen for her very different chocolate mousse cake. Finally, I iced the chilled cake with chocolate glace icing, decorated it with Lindt Balls and piped Rob's name on the top in contrasting white icing.

An update on how this cake tastes will follow.

Postscript: The base cakes were delicious, but I was not such a fan of the mousse filling; this may be primarily because I am not a cream kind of girl . However, the general consensus was that people enjoyed the cake.
