AHello I am making a chocolate cake with chocolate mousse layers in between for a family event on saturday evening. I always use buttercream in between layers and this is the first time I am filling my cake with a mousse, so I have a few questions: once i torte and fill the cake with mousse-should I let the cake sit in a freezer or in the fridge to let the mousse set? Should I wrap it?

And should I decorate the cake with buttercream while the cake is still frozen or shouldI bring it back to room temp?

Please let me know what the procedure should be? TIA

Make a buttercream dam on the first layer and put your mousse filling inside the dam, then put the second layer on top. This will keep the filling from squeezing out of the sides of the cake, and Chill after frosting.

You are welcome.

You don't have to freeze the cake, just put it in the refrigerator until about an hour before serving.

So my cake is assembled and chilling now and I will decorate it tomorrow now. I have some extra mousse left...any suggestions on what else to use it for?

Personal gratification for a job well done.  i.e. use a spoon and put it in your mouth!!!:D
