Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake

Made Famous By:  Heather McMullin’s College Roomie (Made Famous By)

This is another one of  my TOP RECIPES OF ALL TIME.  
It is my very most favorite cake in all the world.
This amazing cake and I met during my second year of college.  One of my roomies at the time made this for my other roomie’s birthday….that is when we fell in love, I mean… I fell in love with this cake.  

I probably ate ½ of it myself and then begged that she make it for my birthday as well.  She kindly agreed.  When I got married she gave me a cook book full of all her treasured recipes.  

She couldn’t have given me a better gift because it has the recipe to my precious Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake.

We have since lost contact so this cake is the only memento I have from our friendship.  That and the memory of walking into  my apartment to find her reading topless on the couch…..sitting right next to my other roomie reading topless on the couch…..true story….
