How likely is it that you could put a layer of ganache on a chocolate mousse, would it be too heavy and sink in?

If that would work, could you put the mousse in a pastry tart case, or would the mousse make the pastry wet and soggy?

Hi I'm no expert but I don't think it'd work. I reckon the ganache would just sink into the mousse and the mousse would surely wet and soggify the pastry....Confused

I don't think you need ganache on a chocolate mousse

Could you put the ganache under the mousse? No idea if it would work but I'm always in favour of more chocolate.

Grin thanks! I agree, I don't think it would work as a topping, but it might swirl through which could be nice.

Anyway, I didn't do it, I just made an ordinary chocolate tart, though I've still got enough cream, chocolate, eggs, sugar, vanilla etc to make the Mousse of All Mousses!

Our friend had invited us to lunch but cancelled at the last minute as she fell ill, poor love. It meant we had to eat the cheese selection I'd also got. Oh dear, life is sometimes hard....
