  2. Remove the mixture from the heat and pour it into the bowl of an electric mixer. Whip on high speed until it cools to 35°C/95°F and creates ribbons, about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate over a hot water bath or in a microwave. Let it cool to 35°C/95°F.
  4. Once both the egg mixture and the chocolate are at the right temperature, strain the egg mixture through a sieve over the chocolate and mix with a whisk until you obtain a homogenous mass.
  5. Whip the heavy cream to medium peaks.
  6. Fold half of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture. Fold in the remaining whipped cream. Fill a piping bag with the mousse and follow the assembly procedure instructions for finishing the cakes.
