triple chocolate mousse cake

I made this cake for Clara’s last birthday but lost the recipe before I had a chance to post it.  The recipe was modified from this recipe.

I was hesitant to share this recipe since you have to do your own calculations.   Depending on the mold you use and the amount of mousse you layer, the ratio will vary, but there were many requests for the recipe, so I am posting it for you to play around with the recipe to fit your own diet.

I was in a hurry, so the cake layers didn’t some out as clean as they should have… hope your turn out prettier =)
