Pastry Wednesday: Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake from Salt Lake Roasting Company

You may have noticed that our Pastry Wednesdays as of late have revolved around our usual fall-backs: Tulie Bakery and Gourmandise Bakery. Both are wonderful and we have found them to be consistently good.

So, when Mr. Blenderhouse brought this Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake from the Salt Lake Roasting Company, we were all pleasantly surprised and pleased!

Just look at how beautiful those chocolate shavings are!

These beautiful shavings will need to be removed when cutting though, because they will shatter and make your table a lovely mess.

Cut carefully!

But what lies beneath--a rich chocolate mousse--is worth it.


It is not overly sweet, but you'll easily need a glass of milk (or soy milk for us lactards) to wash it down.

You can't see it well in this picture, but there are layers to this cake. There are cake layers alternating with mousse layers. It also seemed like there were bits of chocolate shavings atop each mousse layer, because there was a little bit of crisp texture every so often.

We all loved it, but be warned that it is rich and decadent!

  1. I love their pastries! I just had a carrot cake from Red Butte Cafe and it was wonderful (if you need any suggestions for future pastry adventures)!


    1. That is a brilliant suggestion...I am in charge of the pastry soon, so I will have to order something from Red Butte Cafe! Thanks for the idea, RMW!
