This was easy to make. Unfortunately, the mousse mix we used didn't set very well and "slid" off the cake! But the flavor was excellent! The children devoured their servings and begged for more. They even argued about who should get to lick the platter when it's all gone. We will make this again, with a better mousse! Thanks Karen.
