Raspberry & White Chocolate Mousse Cake

Happy Birthday Angelia!!! Gabe's sister, Angel's birthday dinner (Everyone calls her Angel for short) was yesterday and her husband Brandon had asked me to make a birthday cake for her. He didn't mind any flavor and said that Angel likes all kinds of dessert so I wanted to make something that I haven't made for Gabe's family before. The innards of the cake start off with a vanilla sponge cake at the bottom, white chocolate mousse in the middle, and raspberry mousse on the top and surrounding the sides. Then surrounding the raspberry mousse, the whole cake has a velvety thin white chocolate layer on the outside. It is decorated with fresh raspberries in which I bought the day of the dinner party, and on top, I toped the cake with a "Halo" of white chocolate decoration since her name is "Angel". =) Dinner was wonderful! All of her and Brandon's friends were really outgoing and fun. Angel definitely had a great time! Her friends and Brandon enjoyed my cake, but most importantly, the birthday girl enjoyed it! =)
