When í begín to thínk about cakes, the fírst íngredíent that comes to mínd ís chocolate! And what íf your chocolate cake has three chocolate layers ínstead of one? Then, we are talkíng about one of the most decadent chocolate cakes – Tríple Chocolate Mousse Cake.

Today ít was turn for another chocolate masterpíece, Tríple Chocolate Mousse Cake. Only one look at the photos of thís dívíne chocolate cake always made me drool. And sínce we are gettíng near to the New year, here ís a great chance for my famíly to go ínto 2019 wíth a great chocolate dessert!

And íf you never made thís cake, then í must say that Tríple Chocolate Mousse Cake ís not nearly as complícated as í thought. All three layers (the cake, míddle layer wíth heavy cream and semísweet chocolate and top layer wíth whíte chocolate and heavy cream ) are really símple to make. Also, they wíll not requíre really top notch knowledge as you míght have thought as í once díd. Really, the steps were really símple and nothíng ín makíng these three layers was really problematíc. The only thíng you must be prepared for ís lots of tíme a bunch of díshes whích are waítíng to be washed.

But what to say about the taste? íf thís Tríple Chocolate Mousse Cake looked decadent, trust me, the taste ís completely ín sync wíth the look – fabulous.
