OK, first my changes: I did not use the cake recipe provided, as I saw some comments about it being dry etc. Instead I used my traditional go-to chocolate cake recipe (can be found on this website as Vegan Chocolate Cake) and halved it. The result was a little thick, but soooo moist. I also substituted margarine for the butter, which I was nervous about, and I only had around 1 cup of whipping cream. And I used the chocolate chips that I had lying around, nothing high quality. And the results... delicious! I made it for a dinner party that we were having and my guests were completely blown away. They did not believe that it was home made. It probably would have been better with a higher qualty chocolate, but the combination of cake and mousse was really divine. I didn't have the time to make the ganache, so I just shaved some white chocolate onto the center. It was great!!! Also, I did not have time to leave it in the fridge for 2 whole days, it was n probably for like 18 hrs, and it definitely would have been better having set for the full time, it lacked the firmness that restaurant cakes have. But none of my guests seemed to mind the creaminess, it got rave reviews!!! Will be making again!!!
