Luscious Chocolate Mousse Cake (6" Square)

Luscious Chocolate Mousse Cake

I receive many positive feedback on the Luscious Chocolate Mousse Cake I bake for Ling's Birthday although the mousse collapse (sniff sniff) upon reaching the celebration venue. Was pretty disappointed therefore I MUST try to make this cake again with my own adjustment and it is a success!! My in-law say the cake taste very similar to Secret Recipe's Chocolate Indulgence!

It is one delicious and moist chocolate cake meets rich and yummy chocolate mousse. They become great friends who cannot imagine ever living without each other. After all, why should they? They can make so many people so happy. You will be happy after this recipe too!

1. Place the base on a 7" board and spread the MOCHA MOUSSE onto it evenly if you do not want the mousse to cover the side of the cake

2. Add a layer of the cake on top and repeat spreading the mousse till all the cake layers have been used up.

3. Cover the whole cake with the mousse and chill overnight

5. Put in the fridge for few 2hours or till the ganache is harden and serve chill.
