"I have been making this cake since I first saw it printed-I think 2006 or 2007. The second time I made it I too had the problem of the mousse not setting and the cake falling. It was to be a birthday cake for a co-worker and I was determined not to let my hard work and the ingredients go to waste. I lined a large bowl with the frosting and inverted the assembled cake into it. Then I frosted the top of the cake and refrigerated it. My co-workers dubbed it, "bowl cake" and I have made it that way ever since. When I make it for someone I pick out a special bowl and present that as part of the gift. One thing I have found is that I allow the mousse to set "overnight". I believe that is the trick-one to two hours is not enough time. Placing it in the bowl also makes transporting it a breeze. I have also made this replacing the coffee liquer with Bailey's-what a hit that has been! Enjoy! We have many times over!"
