Chocolate Cappuccino Mousse Cake
Total TimePrep: 70 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Okay, I am a cake maker. I make beautiful cakes for Bdays & holidays. It's my nickname for goodness sake. I don't normally try recipes with no ratings or pictures, but this is what a friend wanted for his birthday. Making a single angel food cake mix into 3 separate cake rounds leaves you with very thin cake rounds. If not for the waxed paper, they would have been stuck to the pans and ruined...but they came out...the tops stuck to the sides of the pans. For the filling I used semi-sweet chocolate in an effort to sweeten it just a bit because I felt after reading the recipe it had zero sugar in it. After tasting it, it was bitter and had a funny aftertaste. Just did not like it. However, I pressed on for the birthday recipient. Making the frosting was tough, the liquid included in the recipe did not make smooth frosting...it was hard as a rock...my Kitchenaid nearly locked up. I almost gave up here being it was late at night, I was tired and this cake ensemble did not taste good to me. Not being my first rodeo, I added a few tablespoons of milk. A few, keep going. Wow is the frosting sweet, but it's supposed to be sweet. Put the cake all together, it looked beautiful in all of its tan glory. The birthday boy liked the cake, I did not. He ate a few pieces over a weeks time, had to toss the rest out. Normally it would be gone, I think he was being nice. 2 stars because he said he liked it. For me, never again.
