Mousse cakes

Last Monday, we started working on mousse cakes. With a snow day and me getting sick for the rest of the week, we weren't able to finish them up until this Thursday. I was only around to make the sponge bases, and to decorate them. My amazing partner did the rest (aka the tough part)- she seriously rocks!

We decorated them on Thursday. We made the ganache topping for the chocolate mousse- I think it looks pretty awesome! I have also grown to love making those chocolate filigrees. I filled up an entire huge tray with them! Without much further ado, here are the pictures of the mousse that my partner and I decorated!

I only posted this so you could see all my filigrees in the background!

All together now!
You might be wondering about what is wound around the mousse. It's a plasticky material (for the life of me I can't remember what it's called!), and it keeps the mousse from both drying out and from spilling all over the place when it is set.

Since I wasn't around for most of the creating, I don't have too much to say.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday! I'm going to a bakery with a classmate for homework- not even lying!
