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!

Oh Yeah! This is totally the BEST dessert recipe I've ever tasted! I've now made this 3 times in as many weeks. EVERYONE loves it! And added bonus...It looks so beautiful in my Pampered Chef trifle bowl w/ the removable pedastal! I LOVE it!
