How To Make rose's chocolate mousse berry cake

Test Kitchen Tips
We did use non-stick spray on the springform pan to prevent sticking. Pan came off no problem.
  • 1
    Prepare chocolate cake mix as directed on the package by adding eggs, vegetable oil, and water.
  • 2
    Pour into a 10-inch springform pan. Bake at 325 degrees for a dark pan for about 45 minutes.
  • 3
    Cool cake and slice a sliver off of the top of the cake to make a flat surface.
  • 4
    Slice 1-1/2 pints of strawberries in half, thinly slice the rest. Place a portion of the strawberries around the perimeter standing up, cut side facing out.
  • 5
    Cover the top of the cake with the sliced strawberries.
  • 6
    Then top with the whipped topping.
  • 7
    Prepare one package of chocolate mousse dessert mix. Stir into this the melted chocolate to make a dark chocolate mousse.
  • 8
    Spread this over the top of the whipped topping on the surface of the cake. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  • 9
    Carefully remove the springform pan and top the cake with the remaining strawberries. I removed the springform side first, topped the cake with the cut strawberries, then put the form back on for easy transport.
