I volunteered to do the catering for a friend's wedding as a wedding gift. For the cake, he wants a rich dark chocolate mousse cake. I've never made a chocolate mousse cake, so I would appreciate some guidance.
We were discussing the following layers: chocolate cake | chocolate mousse | chocolate cake | chocolate ganache | whipped cream + strawberries on the top.
I've done some internet searches, and I've not been convinced by any of the recipes I have seen thus far. The kind and knowledgeable folk on chowhound usually lead me in the right direction, so I'm hoping you can do so again :). If you have a recipe that you have used with success, please post. If you have any tips for the making, they would be appreciated.
I will make a test cake about a month before. Unfortunately,I won't be making the wedding cake in my oven/kitchen, which does make me a bit nervous. But I'm usually a good baker so I'm hoping that won't matter.
