LOOK: This chocolate mousse cake with 3 indulgent layers will make your day
Chocoholics, you'll choco-love this decadent yet light dessert!

MANILA, Philippines – If you love choco mousse cakes, you’ll choco-love this a lot – it’s CODY’S best-selling Triple Layer Chocolate Mousse Cake, made with love, lots of chocolate, and just the right amount of sweetness!

Home-based bakery CODY’s was founded by female home baker Colleen in April 2020, a small business that started just from her pandemic-born hobby of baking cookies. A month after its launch, Colleen quickly expanded her baking skill set to cakes, cupcakes, brownies, breads, tarts, and more.

One cake that remained a menu mainstay (and rightfully so) is CODY’s Triple Layer Chocolate Mousse Cake, a beautiful dessert consisting of three decadent layers of fluffy choco mousse made with different kinds of chocolate – bittersweet chocolate at the bottom, milk chocolate at the center, and white chocolate for the top. The light layers sit atop a thin Oreo crust, and everything is topped with shaved tempered chocolate. Both of these elements add a slight crunch to the airy dessert.

CODY’s uses gelatin powder in the mousses to keep them sturdy, and they actually are – they don’t melt as easily or fall over like other mousses do; they’re stable! Because each mousse layer is actually a ganache made with melted chocolate and double cream, you’ll really taste the premium chocolate used per layer, but nothing is too sweet, mabigat, or nakakaumay. It’s an indulgent treat for any chocoholic, but not too indulgent, because the textures are light and the sweetness is just right.

CODY’s Triple Layer Cake costs P920. BTW, it tastes extra yummy chilled from the refrigerator!

If you’re into lighter sponge cakes, CODY’s Cereal Tres Leches (P580) is a good option for dessert, merienda, or even as a guilty pleasure breakfast! Soft, moist sponge cake is soaked in a sweet, three-milk mixture and topped with lightly sweetened whipped cream. On top are cereal cornflakes for crunch.

CODY’s is located in Valenzuela City and is open from 9 am to 6 pm daily. You can place your orders via Instagram. – Rappler.com
