If you want a cake to impress then you really should consider a chocolate mousse cake. You know when you go to a wedding and everything is perfect. The bride is beautiful, the flowers are pretty and cake is looking good. The only problem is when you get served a slice of cake, you realize it just your typical wedding cake. Honestly, who in this world is crazy about marzipan filled with fruit? Not me!
People seem to have finally realized that they needed to step up in the cake making department for formal occasions like these. Now, you may think a chocolate mousse cake is not the most traditional thing to have at a wedding or any other occasion for that matter, but this is where you have to improvise and you will really surprise yourself. Using layers of white and dark chocolate with amazing chocolate creations, which have been carefully designed to give that wow effect, is just going to make such a difference. You definitely won't be trying to find a dog under the table so you can get rid of your terrible tasting marzipan.
This is a recipe you won't forget about in a hurry:
Now it is up to you how you want to decorate it. You can melt a whole lot of dark chocolate and mix this with some cream to form a ganache. This will be nice around the sides. You can either go rustic or you can be really delicate. A cake can look great if you melt plain chocolate, spread it out on some grease proof paper and break it up into some interesting design. You can surround the whole cake like this. If you are more advanced, you can make chocolate roses and place them around the cake. There are a variety of moulds to help with this. Of course, you can't forget about chocolate shavings and twirls. These are very simple to get the hang of.
