Hello! I'm making a cake for my boyfriend's birthday and I plan on making a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. The filling is going to be peanut butter - I was thinking a peanut butter mousse layer would be awesome! But my question is, how do I go about doing it. It can't be too thick of a layer, can it? Or the cake would collapse...I'd have to make it kind of like frosting. Should I torte it so there are more layers to get more filling? Or should I just use my peanut butter frosting for the filling?
And just in general with layered cake and mousse - how does it work?
Thanks so much!
AYou can make a thick "mousse" and 1/4" of filling between each layer would be fine. I would torture the cake so that you get more of the peanut butter taste.
ADarn autocorrect... TORTE, not torture. Heh.
AAm I that transparent?
Thanks! I hope you wouldn't torture the cake, hahah :)
And should I refrigerate the cake after it's filled with the mousse?
AYes, it would definitely need refrigeration. And then more torture.
