Valentine's Chocolate Mousse

Mmmm, chocolate mousse... Rich, creamy and deeply chocolately - perfect for Valetine's Day dessert! How about topping with a cloud of whipped cream and raspberries?

Or why not go the whole way to out and out indulgence and layer the mousse with flourless chocolate cake?

Utter decadence! Now if anyone can singlehandedly polish that off alone I'll be very impressed! Many thanks to Spike for such a perfect pick for today! For the recipe just hop on over here and don't forget to check out the other bakers.

  6. Thank you for all your lovely comments! The cake in particular was gorgeous but not going to lie, eaten a lot of it and now feeling a touch sick!!! Can't resist chocolate...

    I use a canon 500D with a 50mm f1.8 fixed focal length portrait lens. That and a tripod's all I've got! Not the most expensive combo but v effective for capturing my creations for the blog. Love it! Definitely no expert though - only just getting the hang of the photography lark xx
