chocolate mousse cake with pomegranate gelee

Pomegranate Chocolate Mousse Cake


A chocolate mousse cake like you’ve never had before! This mousse component of this cake is called ‘Bird’s Milk’ – a unique name for an incredibly delicious type of Russian mousse. The ‘Bird’s Milk’ is the smoothest, silkiest, most incredible type of mousse – it melts in your mouth and tastes like a bit of heaven! And let’s talk about the rest of this epic cake creation: sponge cake soaked with pomegranate liqueur and a pomegranate gelee center and a shiny chocolate glaze to finish the cake! Every bite of this mousse cake is packed with incredible flavors that balance each other out: sweet, tangy and chocolatey!

Watch my video recipe for all the details. And, head down to my ingredient list for the metric measurements! 

If you’ve never tried Russian ‘Bird’s Milk Torte’, you’re in for a real treat. The original Bird’s Milk Torte is made with vanilla mousse and a simple chocolate glaze. My chocolate version with pomegranate flavor takes the traditional version to a whole new level! I came up with this recipe creation for the holiday season. I wanted to share something with my readers that would be the centerpiece for every holiday gathering. The layers in this cake are simply stunning and look magical! I’ll definitely be making this many, many times this holiday season!

For this recipe, I used half a recipe of my classic sponge cake recipe. Check the ingredient list below! You can find agar gelatin in my shop, link above in the main bar!

Check out this beauty slice of cake! It looks like a piece of art from a cake museum exhibit! Talk about layers!
