This is a dark chocolate dream! It was like fancy-restaurant dessert good. I was a little worried when the 2 cakes each came out only 1 centimeter tall, but then I went back to the recipe and saw "serves 4". Though I'd say more like "serves 8". Next time (and there will be a next time), I'll make 50% more cake and make 3 layers (I think there's plenty of mousse for 3 layers) and figure out how to make chocolate curls for the top. I think that would take this sophisticated cake and make it elegant. This cake was awesome and, except for the whipping cream, I made it with ingredients from Aldi!
