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.

Step-by-Step

  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.
