My kind of chocolate dessert

When presented with a dessert menu in a restaurant, 9 times out of 10 I will choose the one with chocolate in it. (I really don't understand why someone would choose fruit over chocolate ammiright?) Therefore you can imagine my delight when I saw a picture of delicious looking chocolate dome cakes by my friend Byron on Facebook. Instead of just sending me the recipe, he offered show me how to make them in person. I graciously accepted his offer and come the weekend, we got down to bakin'. I soon found out that the cakes tasted even better than they looked on screen.

    1. Hi there! Thanks for your question! You can substitute 1 sheet of gelatin for 2 g of gelatin powder. You could dissolve the gelatin powder in the milk by warming it cup a little bit before mixing it in with the melted chocolate. Make sure the temperature of the mixture is below 40 degrees C before combining it with the lightly whipped cream :) Hope that helps!

  5. Hi Talita! I just discovered your blog and LOVE it! The flavors in this treat and its stunning appearance are stealing my breath away 8). I've noticed in your process shots of various domed deserts that you have both a large silicone hemisphere pan/mold as well as individual metal hemisphere molds (the ones used here). I'm looking to try some domed desserts and would love to know the difference between the 2 types of molds, advantages and disadvantages so I can figure out what to get. Thanks!

  15. Hi. I made this dessert and it turned out all wrong. The cake batter and the chocolate mousse was not enough for 8 domes while the glaze was way too much. The measurements are way off and the instructions are not written very well.

  16. Thank you so much for the great recipe
    And i want to know how much time required the domes to be soft after freezing? ??

    If you're still checking these comments, I'd love to know if the final product is tacky to the touch. I've been experimenting with this glaze and can't seem to get it to set up so that it doesn't completely stick to my fingers! Is that normal?
