Crowd Pleaser !!

I made this for 2 holiday parties last year and will repeat (due to requests!) this year. Takes a little more time but so worth the effort. Looks (and TASTES!)like it came from a Paris bakery! oooo-lala! It's delish!

A nice glass of cold milk . and WHIP CREAM on top of the Mousse cake. This is the way I like to eat my Chocolate cake.

Festive Chocolate Mousse Cake

An elegant dessert that is really not that hard to make. Not a heavy dessert, but light as a cloud. A spectacular finish to a great meal.

Festive Chocolate Mousse Cake

What a delicious master piece. I don't like coffee. So I took out that part. But the over all ending. It was to die for. Thank you!
