Chocolate Mousse Cake Tutorial


Learn how to make a Chocolate Mousse Cake layered with Sacher sponge and decorated with Chocolate Truffles.

In this tutorial, we will be making a delicious chocolate mousse and using it in a layered cake. My last two tutorials (links below) were on how to make a Sacher sponge and how to make chocolate truffles, which will both be used in this tutorial to make our layered chocolate mousse cake. The cake is also coated with a shiny, dark chocolate jelly glaze an eye catching and mouth watering presentation.
