I made this chocolate cake for my friend, who is a chocoholic. Me, being not a great fan of chocolate, although not a hater either, was trying to persuade her to change her cake selection. But what can I say, she's one stubborn person :). I always prefer fruity flavor rather than chocolate flavor if I have options.
So there I was thinking about the layer combination to make a great chocolate cake, that I would actually eat myself.
This cake consists of two layers of moist chocolate sponge cake brushed with raspberry simple syrup (always try to sneak something non-chocolate :P) with a single layer of crispy cocoa meringue in the middle.
The fillings are light and creamy dark chocolate mousse and coffee mousse (since I think chocolate and coffee is a perfect marriage), garnished with white and dark chocolate truffles and cocoa powder on top.
She loves the cake very much that she kept the leftover for herself in the freezer. She would ate just a couple of tablespoon per day so that she can enjoy the cake longer, hahahaha.....
Anyways, I don't remember the recipe that I used, since there isn't such things. I took the recipe for chocolate mousse from here, coffee mousse from there, my own frosting, etc. I didn't really like the recipe for the coffee mousse, it was way too strong and bitter (although I'm a perfectly coffee lover). So, I would just remember the components and creating my own recipe next time.
