BUILDING ON RECIPES!!!!
Yes that’s right, there is no ONE single magical recipe that when you pop it into the oven it comes out looking like this!
Youwill in fact have to start a couple days in advance (to make easy work of it all) and prepare your 4 recipes needed to create this fabulous Professional Bakery Style Cake in less than 10 minutes!
You will amaze your friends and family with the ease at which you “Slap it all together!”
You will Need:
Of course you can go ahead and prepare one recipe after another all in one day, and by 9pm you may have this fabulous cake, but you will most likely be too exhausted to enjoy it!
That is why I recommend preparing as much in advance as possible.
You can bake your cake layers as much as a week (or even 2 weeks like I do sometimes!) in advance, just be sure to wrap them properly for freezing. See this video demo on how I do that. How to Wrap Cake for Freezer Storage
Next prepare the Chocolate Mousse, this is an absolute MUST to prepare in advance because you will need it to firm up for at least a half day before it is firm enough to use inside your cake.
Then Ganache will need to be made and then of course the Whipped Cream. DO not make the Whipped Cream until the DAY YOU ARE ASSEMBLING your cake!!
Everything else though, can be done several DAYS in advance.
Once you have your Mise en Place arsenal of recipes in place, you can proceed as I demonstrate in this following video for how to make the BEST CHOCOLATE MOUSSE CAKE OF YOUR LIFE!!
The finished chocolate mousse cake must be kept refrigerated and will stay fresh for up to 4 days.
Once you cut into the cake, the shelf life is less, just about a day or 2.
