A Mousse for Mom

Last weekend we had a small get-together for my mom's birthday.  And of course, no birthday is complete with our cake!  I've been wanting to make mousse recently, so voila mousse cake... 

Caramel, Banana & Chocolate Mousse Cake [01.15.2011]

My favorite was the caramel layer, but my mom loved the feuilletine base - go figure.  There's also a thin layer of chocolate cake wrapped around the banana and chocolate layers.  I molded this mousse cake in a large charlotte mold that I received as a birthday present last year from Thanh.  About time, no?


Hope you had a Happy Birthday mom - many more to come!
