I want to make a cake for my cousins 21 birthday party and I was thinking of back chocolate cake with a layer of chocolate mousse and rasperry jam with another layer of ganach ( I think that's how you spell it) I just don't want it too sweet does anybody have a good recipe for the chocolate mousse thank-you all for your help
here is one that lots of decorators on c/c use. there are plenty others under the recipes on here.
I have tried this one also. very good. Some i make from scratch also. hth
I use this recipe all the time with great success-
6 oz Baker's Semi-sweet chocolate
1-1/2 cups heavy cream divided
Chill bowl and beaters in freezer
Break chocolate up in medium/large glass bowl
pour 1/4 cup of heavy cream over chocolate
heat in microwave. I heat in 20 second incriments so as not to over do it. Take it out and stir after
each time. Once chocolate is completely melted and stirred into the cream, let sit at room temp for 20 minutes. Beat the remaining 1 -1/4 c of cream. Whisk the cream into trhe chocolate and refridgerate until ready to use.
