Mousse cakes are not just about the mousse. It’s the main part, of course, and the other layers are covered in it, but the cake won’t be complete without the filling: thin sponge, fruit or berry confit layer, cream layer, crunchy layer.. Usually there are several of them, because the idea of french mousse cake is exactly in their combination.
