Chocolate Mousse Cake

Today is my birthday! So I wanted to share my favorite birthday cake recipe. It is a chocolate mousse cake. Its kind of a mock version, but when in a rush, this is the way to go.

1 devils food cake mix
2 containers of chocolate frosting
1 small container of whipped topping
1 8 oz. jar of hot fudge

Make the cake according to directions, but bake in 3 rectangles. When the cake is cooled, remove first cake and place on cookie sheet or cake plate so that you can begin to frost. In large bowl empty whipped topping and 1 container of frosting. With mixer combine the 2 ingredients until the texture is fluffy. Place a big dollop of this mousse mixture in the middle of the first layer and smooth to edges, but do not do sides. Place 2nd layer and do the same thing. You must use a good amount, do not spread like a frosting, but place about a 1/4-1/2 of an inch between cakes. Now place last layer on and begin to frost cake as you would with the other container. Take the hot fudge and heat in microwave or pot of water you want this hot fudge to become liquidy. When at the consistency you are comfortable with begin to pour over cake. Use as much or as little as you want. Garnish as desired. Serve with ice cold milk! This is a good birthday cake for someone who loves chocolate.
