Easy Soft Creamy Chocolate Mousse Cake

Chocolate Mousse Cake – If you’re looking at something not so much of cake, mousse is something you’ll probably desire, very minimal chewing needed as it will melt in your mouth. This super moist dark chocolate mousse cake combines dark compound chocolate with whipped cream over a base and sides of cotton sponge zebra cake. The zebra design is optional, you can go for full vanilla or full chocolate cake. Since this is a tall mousse cake, I added minimal gelatines just so that it’s able to stand. If you pretty without gelatines, you can always go for layer cake with the mousse in between the layers. If you’re a chocolate lover, you probably don’t want to miss out this cake. Hope you’ll give it a try, perhaps a birthday or party cake for a change. Enjoy!
