Change of Pace: Triple layer chocolate mousse cake

Sometimes a change of pace is indicated - as when it's time to make a birthday cake for my husband!  Much as he enjoys novelty cakes, he also likes elegant, gourmet taste, and so this year he specifically requested this triple layer chocolate mousse cake.  (It really is a triple layer -- it's just that the bottom layer shrunk away from the pan edge and so the middle layer spilled over and hid it!)  

This is an incredibly rich, bittersweet chocolate and white chocolate mousse, taken from the recipes of the fabulous Cook's Illustrated magazine.  So I can't share the recipe -- you'll have to get it from them!

Incidentally, Cook's Illustrated has a regular magazine, as well as online subscriptions, that is full of marvelous recipes that really work!  My husband has a standing subscription and we love trying out new things, or old things retooled.
