Chocolate mousse cake runs the gamut from fluffy, insubstantial layer cake to dense-as-a-brick, and fudge-like slab. Could we make one that maintained the qualities of a perfect chocolate mousse--rich, creamy, and full of chocolate flavor?

We wanted to see if all the fuss over premium chocolates is based on quality or hype.
