What do you do with leftover angel food cake? You make delicious Chocolate Mousse Dessert of course.
Recently my husband and I hosted a birthday party for my mother. We served angel food cake and ice cream for dessert. I wanted to make sure we had plenty of dessert for everyone. Especially since we were going to have several attending that are gluten intolerant. Therefore, the day before the party, I baked one regular angel food cake, one Funfetti angel food cake, and one gluten free angel food cake.

In the end, we had a little regular angel food cake and gluten free cake leftover. I placed the leftover cakes into separate, labeled containers and stuck them in my freezer. A week later, I thawed the leftover gluten free cake and made yummy individual Gluten Free Butterfinger Parfaits. Today I made this creamy Chocolate Mousse Dessert using the remaining leftover regular angel food cake.
This gorgeous Marquis by Waterford Markham Crystal Glass Bowl is similar to what I used. My crystal bowl was given to me as a gift and I use it for all kinds of salads and desserts.
This dessert is super simple to make and has a nice creaminess to it. You can easily turn it into individual parfaits as well, plus you can garnish it with various other toppings that you have on hand, such as Almond Joy candy bars, Health Bit candies, etc… (I’m all about creatively using up leftovers).
I need to throw another party and make more angel food cake because I want to whip up this tasty Chocolate Mousse Dessert again sometime soon!!!
