Re:Chocolate Mousse Layer Cake

I have been making and decorating cakes for a few years but this was the first time i ever made mousse. You really need to set up your work space ahead of time, the cold water bath, the beaters, warm up your eggs, etc. Do as much prep work as possible before starting, otherwise you will be yelling for help at a crucial moment like I did. First try, my eggs wouldn't fluff so I read that you should make the eggs room temp, not get ANY yolk in the whites, etc. I started over and they it was perfect. This was not a simple recipe, but now that I have done it once, I know how to do it and it will seem way easier next time around. This is a great option to do in lieu of chocolate ganache which uses way more actual chocolate and cream and is pricier. I also decorated mine with chocolate curls on the sides, and huge, fresh strawberries on top which I drizzles with chocolate. All that said, this was THE best tasting cake I have ever made. It was the perfect texture, sweetness, presentation, etc. I can't say enough good about it. Highly recommended and well worth trying to figure out how to do it.
