Sponge Cake with Rhubarb and Chocolate Mousse
You don’t have to be a master baker to prepare layer cake charlottes with a certain grandeur and schwung. This sponge cake with rhubarb and chocolate mousse can be made in an hour.
I’m generally too sloppy to make a good baker. Baking requires meticulous precision and the difference between success and failure can lie in a few grams more and a few centigrades less.
Still I enjoy making grand layered cakes like Tuscan zuccotto, cassata siciliana and now this sponge cake with rhubarb and chocolate mousse, and they are usually extremely popular with the guinea-pigs I ask to test the result.
