    HokiesMom's Note:

    From a Borden recipe booklet I picked up in 1993. Makes a 9-inch 2 layer cake. A wonderfully light cake in texture with a great chocolate flavor. This is a bit of work with the extra chill times but it is definitely worth it. Remember to store this in the refrigerator.

      I made my own chocolate sponge cake (I didn't have any cake mixes OR pudding mix) but the mousse frosting was great, no AMAZING! I think it would also go great with a vanilla cake too. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT8 (The Fearless Red Dragons)

      I really like the chocolate mousse filling/frosting. I've used it on other cakes for a change up. It makes for a decadent cake!
