The Making of Christmas

It’s been a fraught lead up to Christmas this year. Since my ‘I hate December’ post, both Golli and Mogi have had to go to the vet and Mogi is still not well. But Christmas must go on, so here are some pics of the Chocolate Mousse cake ‘in progress.’

The chocolate mousse. The two holes were for quality control…honest. šŸ˜‰

Two homemade chocolate sponge cakes, cut in half. Each layer will be placed in the baking tin and covered with room temperature chocolate mousse. Like this:

When all the layers are done, including for the top and sides, dark chocolate is shaved over the top:

May your Christmas be full of good food, good friends and good cheer.
