Valentine's Day is coming up! Ok, let me be honest here. I'm married, I have a toddler and my husband and I are not the romantic type of couple. In the 8 years that we've been together, I don't think that we've celebrated this holiday once. However, I'm always looking for an excuse to eat chocolate <3
This is probably the easiest fancy looking dessert that you can do. With two or three ingredients, there's no excuse for not having a Valentine's Day dessert.
This is the cake I made for my sister's 20th Birthday. She requested something with mouse, so I conjured up this. The base is mudcake, the centre stabilised chocolate mousse, and the top is stabilised cream. It is in turn decorated with chocolate coated strawberries and chocolate discs.
Hiding inside the mousse are cream-filled profiteroles. The picture of the innards is here in my gallery: [link]
