If you all wouldn't mind, I would love to know your tried and true strawberry mousse filling--you know the kind that people say "wow that is so good!!" I am planning on making my daughters graduation cake and I would love to impress all of the family and friends with it! I have been looking at different mousse recipes and I would just like you all wonderfully talented people out there to tell me what you think!
I would very much appreciate it!!!

Here is a good mousse recipe, in fact, I am making it right now...lol

2 boxes Vanilla (or french vanilla, or cheesecake or white chocolate, depending on the flavor you are going for) instant pudding (not sugar free)
1 Cup Whole Milk
1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 tsp Brandy (optional)
8 oz frozen sliced strawberries (thawed and drained of juice) or fresh clean sliced strawberries

Chill KA mixing bowl and paddle attachment.

In another large bowl, mix pudding and milk until thickened. Fold in strawberries. Set aside.

Mix heavy whipping cream in chilled bowl on medium speed until light or soft peaks form. DO NOT OVERMIX, we don't want butter (at this time add in the brandy and whip for a few minutes longer). Fold whipping cream into pudding mixture. Chill for an hour. Spread between layers.

Can use any pudding/fruit mixture to suit your taste.

I make something simular to "thedessertdiva" Only I add the instant pudding to the Cool whip and fold in the fruit. I use can pineapple or manderin oranges.
