This cake is DELICIOUS! It is very intimidating, at first, only because there are so many elements to this cake, but just take it one step at a time. Once you try the cakey brownie, Crunchy Corn Flakes, & creamy Brulee ALL together, I Promise you won't be disappointed!

  3. For the Peanut Butter Mousse
    Whip the Cream & sugar with a mixer, on high, until stiff peaks form. Fold in Peanut butter & Refrigerate
  4. For the Ganache
    cook the cream & chocolate in a double boiler until melted & combined. set aside.
  5. Melt Chocolate and coat corn flakes. Spread out on a plate & refrigerate until ready to use.
