A Day for Chocolate

Today is my brother’s half birthday. His birthday is on Christmas, and because he doesn’t get a “real” birthday party, we celebrate the half. He requested something with chocolate mousse, so I made a chocolate cake…but only half. Also, half a batch of cupcakes.

It’s an easy chocolate cake, cut in half and piled, with a layer of chocolate ganache in between the layers. I put a layer of the ganache, let it cool, and put another layer. The cupcakes are also just chocolate, with a layer of ganache and chocolate mousse on top. The mousse didn’t turn out as thick as usual, so it didn’t get to be piled as high, which is sort of disappointing, but it’s alright.

Definitely ended up with chocolatey chocolatey cake. Chocolate ganache, mousse, sprinkles, and chunks of dark chocolate.
