A chocolate mousse cake like you’ve never had before! My Pomegranate Chocolate Mousse Cake is a real stunner, with layers of delicate sponge cake soaked with pomegranate liqueur with a center of pomegranate gelee. The chocolate mousse is simply heavenly and literally melts in your mouth! For the chocolate mousse recipe, I use my Russian Bird’s Milk recipe – more about that later! Every bite of this chocolate mousse cake is packed with incredible flavors that balance each other out: sweet, tangy and chocolatey!

I came up with this chocolate mousse cake creation for the holiday season. I wanted to share something with my readers that would be the centerpiece for every holiday gathering and use in-season pomegranate. The layers in this pomegranate cake are simply stunning and look magical! I’ll definitely be making this many, many times this holiday season!
A Unique Chocolate Mousse Recipe
All Those Layers!
The chocolate mousse is hiding a secret inside! Inside, there is delicate sponge cake soaked with pomegranate liqueur and a pomegranate gelee center and a shiny chocolate glaze to finish the cake! For the sponge cake, I prepared a small batch of my classic sponge cake recipe. It’s super easy to make and perfect for this type of cake. The pomegranate liqueur soaks right into the cake layers and adds incredible fruity flavor, along with the pomegranate gelee center.
