I first saw this cake on Keiko's blog about 7 years ago when I was still in college, just starting to get interested in baking, mostly brownies. Keiko's blog was one of the very first cooking blogs I read and I would come back everyday to admire the pictures and dreamed that someday, I would be able to make cakes as pretty as hers. I admired it so much that I attempted to make it (with no recipe on hand), it was a failure of course. I wasn't even familiar with mousse, or any of baking techniques. I kept checking her blog regularly and one day, she made the same cake again and posted the recipe this time! I bookmarked it and a few years after, I finally managed to make it.
