This was by far one of the best cakes I have ever had. I made it for my mother inlaw and my boss's birthdays this week and they were both amazed by it. (my boss is a baker!) I made the first cake with Pillsbury (we use it at work) and then read the rest of the reviews while it was in the oven and found out NOT to use it because of the pudding in the mix. I then called my husband and had him get me Duncan Hines and made the 2nd one with it and it turned out perfect. Granted, they tasted the same, but the Pillsbury didn't set the way the Duncan did. I am fortunate enough to work in a bakery and have access to cake boards and plastic collars to make "decorating" it easier. Since the cake rose real high in the pan, I couldn't really put the mousse on top of it so I put the collar around the cake and was able to do it that way. Sorry for the long review! Amazing recipe, will definitely use again and already have requests for upcoming bdays and anniversary's!
