Mocha Mousse Cake it's oh-so-good
Now, please don't be confused...Elisa Strauss from Confetti Cakes does NOT call this chocolate cake recipe Mocha Mousse. Instead, I used this cake recipe as the base for another favorite recipe of mine, Mocha Mousse cake from Betty Crocker. Betty's recipe calls for a box cake, but I'm trying to go more "from scratch" these days. I love the mocha mousse filling, though it doesn't have the structural support for stacked and decorated cakes. In fact I whipped this cake together and rushed it over to my in-law's house without letting it set-up in the fridge for 2 hours as suggested. As a result, the cake was leaning a bit...as you might be able to see from the photo. Leaning or not it tasted good, and it has already become my chocolate cake recipe of choice.
This is a relatively short post, as I'm working on a monster cake for this weekend. Check out the Confetti Cakes Cookbook in my Amazon Astore! (see the link to the left of this post) Happy Baking!
