This recipe is for a delicious strawberry mousse cake. It will be a wonderful dark, sticky bottom, with a refreshing strawberry mousse on top. This cake is not too sweet and it is gives an extra good taste to add some fresh strawberries on top the mousse as decoration. You can replace the strawberries with any berries you like, and it will still be an incredibly good cake.
