Can anyone please suggest a kick hiney chocolate mousse recipe for a wedding cake.
I tried another recipe its ok but it seems to soak into the cake...by the time I cut it the cake already absorbed most of the mousse...am I doing something wrong?

Thank you

I make a choc. mousse using 1 box of choc. pudding mix (instant) and 2 cups of Rich's bettercreme (liquid) and 1 cup of milk and whip it all together until it forms stiff peaks. You can make it more chocolatey by adding some cocoa powder or even hershey's choc. syrup (in the can), and that darkens it too..........I get rave reviews about it and the part I love the most is that it's stable at room temp for up to 5 days!!! Perfect for wedding cakes, since they sit for most of the night before getting served.

Well, this isn't technicaly mousse, but it's to die for. I fold really good melted and cooled chocolate into SMBC for my chocolate filling. O.M.G.

Rich's is sold in some grocery stores but I get it at GFS (Gordon Food supply) if you go to their website you can type in your zip and search for the closest stores. HTH

Lucy, I get the pre-whipped at Sam's at the bakery and fold in some cooled ganache or thickly made pudding for a mousse-type filling.
