Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake

Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake is a delicious three layers of chocolate goodness! There is a dark and rich dark chocolate mousse layer, a smooth milk chocolate mousse layer and a soft white chocolate mousse layer! All three layers together make this cake rich, tasty and divine! When you take a spoonful of this cake, it simply melts in your mouth! I love mousse cakes and make it quite often. I have posted a few mousse cakes earlier and I made this to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we all loved it.

The cake is actually pretty simple to make but it involves a few steps and it takes a little while to get it all done. For me, I love baking cakes and I thoroughly enjoyed making this cake!
I used an eight-inch springform pan to make this cake and I built the sides of the pan with baking paper as I was not sure if the whole cake will fit in my pan. If you pan has tall sides, you can skip this step.

To garnish and unmould
1. After 30 minutes, I poured a thin layer of ganache over the white chocolate layer.
2. Then keep the mousse cake to set in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.

3. After 6-8 hours, take the cake out of the fridge and leave it on the counter for 10 minutes. 4. Then slowly remove the outer ring of the springform pan and remove the baking paper. 

5. Then I decorated with some chocolate chips and it's ready to serve!!

Notes
1. You can use the double boiler to melt the chocolate instead of the microwave. 
2. You need not build the sides of the pan like I did, if the sides of your pan are tall enough.
3. If you don't want to use ganache as the top layer, you can simply add a layer of cocoa powder or decorate it any other way you prefer.


Until next time,
