Firstly, we enjoyed this dessert at a buffet and since have made it twice myself.A hit both times!I halved the cake freezing for another time since the recipe is quite large.I prefer using the instant mousse...creamier and lighter and did not use kahlua.Our guests said it was the best dessert ever!
