This chocolate mousse cake is one of the most decadent desserts you are ever likely to see. It is a chocolate lovers dream, with chocolate hazelnut brownie base, and rich & light chocolate mousse centre wrapped in a glossy chocolate ribbon, topped with crispy hazelnut dentelles and toasted hazelnuts. It is just an symphony of chocolate flavours and textures.

The mousse it made in a traditional cremeaux style, enriched with egg yolks and lightened with meringue to give the mousse both body and richness to carry the chocolate but with a cloud like lightness that allows you to have more than one slice!

The Chocolate Mousse Cake itself is actually a very straight forward, the crowning glory of this dessert is the finishing!

The rich, fudgy brownie and luxuriously light chocolate mousse are completely encased in a polished chocolate ring, and the hazelnut dentelle shards are arrange at random to provide texture, height and a huge wallop of visual impact, producing a fantastic landscape to the top of your cake!

Of course if all that feels like a bit too much, you can always top the cake with some grated chocolate or drizzle of melted chocolate instead.

To sum up; this cake is good! Birthdays. Holidays. Or even Thursdays. This Chocolate Mousse Cake is the perfect dessert for any occasion.
