Minette’s Chocolate Mousse Cake

Well, the Best Chocolate Cake is a hit. Let’s take it to the next level, if that is even possible, with Minette’s Chocolate Mousse Cake. Using two layers of the Best Chocolate Cake, Mascarpone mousse, strawberries, and ganache, you can create a dessert cake that your guests will fawn over.

You can never go wrong add a bit of berry to chocolate. It is the perfect mix of tart and chocolate. Strawberries are in season and you know I can’t help myself when I go to my favorite fruit stand, Davis Produce. The thick layer of mascarpone mousse lightens up the chocolate and pairs lovely with fruit. Sliced strawberries and shiny ganache take this cake from beautiful to decadent.

Shiny Ganache


Description

This semi-sweet ganache is not only scrumptious but beautiful as well.  I use it as a glaze for Minette’s Chocolate Mousse Cake and other desserts that require a chocolate glaze. I love that it stays shiny, even on a cold cake.
