My Hubby's 30th birthday is coming up in about 2 weeks. We have a "tradition" every year I ask what kind of cake he would like, he thinks for a few minutes than ALWAYS comes up with something crazy, never simple. He says he likes to challenge me, hahaha thank you dear. Now a couple years ago he wanted a 3 layer chocolate cherry cake filled and iced. I spent a week just looking for cherry flavoring, no luck. I ended up using maraschino cherry syrup, it was a mess! About 5 years ago he wanted a 4 layer, 2 white, 2 chocolate filled with strawberry mousse and frosted with chocolate icing. See how weird he is???? I think this is his way of getting back at me for something.
Anyhow, this year he has asked for something relatively simple, he's been really stressed and busy lately so I think that's why. He asked for a chocolate cake with chocolate cherry mousse. Shouldn't be too hard right??? So I thought I would get on here and ask my baking blog buddies, you all, for some help. Any recipes for chocolate/cherry cake, mousse, frosting would be greatly apprieciated. Also if you have any decorating ideas for it, that would be great too!
Do you all have your thinking caps on????????
