Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake

This one really is very late post, i am making triple chocolate mousse cake twice for mother's & father's day back in may and June.

if you want to look at my first mousse cake, please click here

For mothers day cake, i ruined the decoration and its just too tall. Despite, the not so pretty decoration, surprisingly the cake does taste really good, very chocolaty, creamy and soft.

My whole family accept this triple chocolate mousse cake. My father who doesn't eat any 'modern cake' (he only eat butter cake/pandan chiffon)  say this triple mousse cake was good and he ate one slice every night after meal until the cake finished.

By learning from previous not so pretty mousse cake, for my second attempt which for fathers day cake, i really measure the thickness of each layer to avoid the cake become to tall again, and put more effort for decoration. I make chocolate fence around the cake, put strawberry on top and the pretty fathers day greeting written by my little sisters.
