Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake

I wanted to make something special for my dad's 60th birthday. Something that I hadn't made before, so it would be a surprise.

It took me a while to find this recipe that was both appealing in taste and appearance. A flour-less mousse cake made with dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. For this cake, no expense was spared; I splurged on Valrhona chocolate.

On my dad's birthday, we treated him to a sumptuous 8-course dinner at a fancy restaurant, and ended it with a special 9th course - my Triple Choc Mousse Cake!

The restaurant was dim, so no nice pictures of the cake's inside were taken.  But I have a picture from my trial cake earlier this month. You'll see the 3 distinct layers of chocolate. 

The recipe looks tedious, but it's really quite easy once you get down to reading it. And the taste is worth the effort!
