I am new. I wanted to make choclate mousse filling. Can I just add cocoa powder to the buttercream? or is there another way. Which coco do you prefer?

the easiest and most delicious way I know is to either add chocolate hershey's syrup or powdered chocolate pudding mix to Rich's Bettercreme icing that comes in the 1 qt. containers, add the choc.. and then whip it to the desired freshness, it's fine left at room temp. for up to 5 days which is another plus when putting it in a cake!!

Do a mousse search in the recipe (fillings). There are tons of recipes and options. Good luck

For most of my mousses I use pudding and a mixture of Pastry Pride ready to whip vanilla filling/frosting and heavy whipping cream. i have done it with chocolate, vanilla, cheesecake and banana puddings and they come out great!

It depends on what you are looking for. If you want an actual chocolate mousse it's not hard to make.. just looks like a lot of steps.

I use a quick version... I whip up heavy cream and then added melted and cooled chocolate to it. I usually add whip cream stabilizer to it too and then keep it in the fridge.

WB Whipped choc. ganache is excellent. It is like a chocolate mousse.

Combining chocolate with buttercream is NOT mousse, it's chocolate buttercream.

Real mousse is similar to what we Americans call pudding, although most mousses are lighter and firmer and richer (yes, all at the same time) than American puddings.

Traditionally, mousses are made with eggs, sugar, and flavoring, although many recipes also use heavy cream.

Here are my favorite mousse recipes:

However, for cakes, I often just go with a whipped ganache. It is similar in taste and texture to mousse and much easier and faster to make.

For a chocolate "mousse"-like filling (I know it's not real mousse), I mix Frostin' Pride (similar to bettercream and pastry pride mentioned above) with melted bittersweet chocolate.

I made a ganache and actually didn't like the flavor. I took regular heavy cream and chocolate pudding mix and ta-da! Everyone loved it.

It tastes like chocolate.

What kind of chocolate did you use?

If you used unsweetened chocolate, it would be bitter.

I used semi-sweet. I was in a crunch and since I didn't like the flavor I did the pudding/mousse alternative.
