  • Wait until the cake is completely cooled before cutting it and spreading the mousse. If the cake is still hot, it may cause the mousse to melt.
  • When you slice the strawberries, set aside slices of similar size. Then use these to line the bottom of the cake to create a symmetrical look.
  • Once you have layered the mousse in the cake, refrigerate the cake while you prepare the chocolate whipped cream and slice the strawberries. This will allow the chocolate mousse to become more firm.
  • Note: The whipped cream is not chocolate flavored. The chocolate added to it is to give it a chocolate brown appearance.
