Chocolate Mousse Cake



     Check out this delicious chocolate cake that I made for Thanksgiving. My family love chocolate when it comes to desserts. I made this cake with the help of a cool baking pan called the Love Cooking Gourmet Fill N Flip™. This cool pan from Love Cooking allows you to fill your cake with your favorite filling. The set comes with two pans that are designed with an opening in the center for your filling and then fit together perfectly to make frosting the cake simple. Your guests will be surprised when you cut into the cake and a yummy chocolate mousse filling is discovered. See my recipe at the end of page.







The Love Cooking Company also makes some other cool baking pans. Here are two others that I had fun trying out, 




The PushPan® allows you to remove your cake from the pan without a mess. The pan is an alternative to a spring-form pan and with a simple push, your cake comes out of the pan. No more having half the cake remaining in the pan.



I also used the Push Pan to make a pumpkin cheesecake and loved how easy my cake came out of the pan. It looked wonderful! Try doing that with a pie pan.



The last item that I tried was the Mrs. Fields Cutie Cakes™ Baking Pan. This pan makes 48 bite-size cakes which are perfect for parties.


I did not have much luck with this pan though. I followed the instructions when I filled each section with my cake batter. My cakes still over-flowed and were difficult to get out of the pan. I even greased the pan.


This was all I was able to salvage from the pan. These cakes are very small and hard to frost too, I put a penny on the dish so you could understand the size. This pan involved to much work for me for these little cakes. Maybe you might have better results with the pan.

Here is my recipe for the Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake.


 Chocolate Mousse Cake

Ingredients

Cake
1 box chocolate cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box

Chocolate Mousse Filling and Frosting
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 container white frosting 
1 container chocolate frosting


First, thoroughly butter and flour both pans. Then fill with cake batter, made from directions on box,1 about three quarters of the way. Bake according to your cake recipe. Remove from the oven and let cool. Carefully flip each pan upside down and remove the pieces. Add half the chocolate mousse filling/frosting to the cake with the larger opening. Place the non-filled cake on top of the filled cake. Then frost with the remaining mousse/frosting.

While cake is baking and cooling, you can prepare the filling/frosting.

To prepare the filling/frosting

 In medium microwavable bowl, place chocolate chips and whipping cream. Microwave uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring once every minute, until chocolate is melted. Stir until mixture is smooth. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Add frostings to chocolate mixture. Beat with electric mixer on high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until well blended and fluffy.
