Strawberry and chocolate mousse cake

I miss my baking so much, since moving to my new house I don't have the time like I use to have. Because I am now so busy, I can only bake something easy and less time consuming.
Although my plan was to make a simple mousse cake, I somehow made a two layer mousse cake to then bake a chocolate sponge for it and made a chocolate mirror glaze!! Phew!
Did I make it easy for myself? Well, not when you see the washing up I had after!
Anyway I felt amazing, despite all the washing up cos my kids were both super impressed!
Mummy have done it again!

I had this vision in my head how I want this cake to look.
I realised I had nothing to decorate it with so I rushed out to buy more strawberries but only to find that the strawberries the supermarkets had were way too big for my cake, so I ended up using raspberries instead.
Which is why so many people thought I have accidentally typed in strawberries mousse instead of raspberries!
I should have said it's a Strawberry mousse cake topped with fresh raspberries.
When you make this cake feel free to use raspberries or strawberries.
