Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Mousse Cake

Another trial!  Success declared, though not yet perfect and close to Cova‘s Peanut Feuillentine Cake.  The paillete feuilletine lost its crunchiness when mixed with the mousse.  Peanut butter and milk chocolate in two layers, not only a peanut butter mousse cake per Cova’s version.  Not good or bad.  Hmm, it’s a good cake.  Full of peanut’s unique fragrance and creaminess.  Different tastes fused together to enlighten the taste buds.  It’s served after an enjoyable lunch with a friend. 

I did not use heavy cream but normal cream.  5g gelatin used for the two mousse layers.  Yup, thanks to another blogger for information to make a version of mine.
