Menu Description: “Rich layers of chocolate cake, dark chocolate cheesecake and creamy custard mousse.”

There are four delicious layers in this amazing cake that has been a signature dessert at the Italian chain for years, and assembling your own home clone is not difficult. For the two cheesecake layers in the middle I created a custom “no-bake” recipe since the chocolate cake on the bottom is already baked and we don’t want to keep baking it. The top layer is made by slowly cooking egg, cream, and sugar until thick, then stirring in chocolate chips. White chocolate drizzle is swirled into this fudgy topping, dark chocolate buttercream frosting is added, then mini chocolate chips are pressed all around the side of the cake for a beautiful finishing touch. The cake take a bit of time since each layer needs to set up in the chill box before the next one is added. When it’s all done you’ll have 12 servings of a really great looking dessert that will bring you loads of thanks from every chocoholic in the room.

My daughter and I love Olive Garden's Black Tie Mousse Cake and I knew I was going to have to make this for her on her birthday! Tastes just like the original! I only wish I would have added the black food coloring to the frosting and then mine would have looked just like Olive Garden's Cake. Todd makes some fantastic clones! Thanks Todd!
