Go ahead...lick your computer one's looking

So my interview baking went down VERY well. I am thoroughly pleased with my results. I made a chocolate cake, which I cut into circles (thank you baby for suggesting WS to find the right shape). Then I put a thin layer of homemade dark chocolate mousse in between two of the circles. Topped off with a little more mousse, a fresh raspberry, some raspberry coulee drizzled on top with dark chocolate shavings. I am just proud of myself and not ashamed to say it, I did a darn good job and they not only look fantastic they taste fantastic.
No matter what happens I feel like I have taken a step in the right direction.

I will explain the process in pictures, because..well it's my blog, so just deal.

Letting the Cake cool after baking.

Making the raspberry coulee

This is after cutting the circles and adding the mousse. I wrapped them in parchment paper and let them set in the refrigerator.

This is just one plate design, I went with something different in the box.

The computer screen was a major disappointment. Man, that looks delicious, though!!
