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.

Thanks! I hope you wouldn't torture the cake, hahah :)

And should I refrigerate the cake after it's filled with the mousse?

Yep, I guess it was a Freudian slip

AYes, it would definitely need refrigeration. And then more torture.
