Trio-cake



Yesterday, you got to hear about a great dessert. Today, something less so. I made this cake for Per's birthday, following a recipe from Vetekatten. (Great, great café, lousy cookbook.) Well, I'm sorry to report that it was very so-so. Not exciting at all, despite massive amounts of cream and chocolate. It's basically a bottom with three layers of dark, milk and white chocolate mousses. Frozen. In theory, great. In reality, not so much. It's fine, just not worth the trouble. I'll stick with either my own chocolate mousse (which NEVER fails me) or with this frozen chocolate mousse cake, just adding different types of chocolate.

This looks great but...

I'm really posting this to say that those little kittens are absolutely adorable! I would just love to hold and snuggle one, and I'm not even a cat person!

The book is in a miserable format for a kitchen. Then as the recipes go, some are great (I make cinnamon buns from their recipes that I can't get enough of), whereas the rest is just well stuff you can do without.
