Cake for St. Valentine's Day

On a St. Valentine's Day I decided to make a chocolate cake for my dear husband because unlike me he is a chocolate soul ^^; I chose very interesting and not very difficult to prepare cake and as it turned out later just gorgeous to taste! So we are recommending to try it to everybody with no exception!
This recipe requires a springform pan at least 3 inches high. It is imperative that each layer is made in sequential order. For best results, chill the mixer bowl before whipping the heavy cream. Also there were recommendations of what
chocolate brand is better to use. I did as recommended: Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Bar for the base and middle layers and Guittard Choc-Au-Lait White Chips for the top layer. The entire cake can be made through step 8 and refrigerated up to a day in advance; leave it out at room temperature for up to 45 minutes before releasing it from the cake pan and serving.
So, today in the menu we have:

Hina Ichigo at the kitchen! Let's take a look and see what is she doing there!?

My husband came to me once and said "you will write about your cooking in our blog!". "What a surprise" I thought. How do I start? Because I know so many recipes! And then Hina Ichigo gave us an idea by saying "I helped to prepare cake not so long ago! Let's start with it!" ^^ So we agreed :)

Ah, for those who don't know who Hina-chan is, let me tell you in a few words. Hina Ichigo is one of the seven dolls from an anime Rozen Maiden, this is if we talk about the character. A limited edition dollfie Hina-chan got to us from Volks company. Originally released for Dollfie Party 18. And we are thankful to them!
Hina-chan loves strawberries a lot, and her name means just that. It means Baby Strawberry. Thet's why she can't resist the cake, which I wanted to do for a long time because I love strawberry very much too! In order to make it tastier, Hina-chan volunteered to help in cooking.
So today in the menu we have:

"White Chocolate Strawberry Mousse Cake"
