The chocolate orange mousse cake is a truly sophisticated gourmet fare! this is a perfect dessert of soft chocolate sponge cake sandwiched with a dark chocolate filling and candied orange peels, covered with chocolate truffle. A garnishing of candied orange peel adds to the citrus tinge, balancing the otherwise dominating chocolate flavour quite well.

I have tried your various recipes and got compliments for it. I tried chocolate sponge cake for the very first time and came out to be awesome. I love baking and want to advance with recipes. This recipe seems to be awesome since it has both my fav flavors. I am unable to get candied orange used here. can I use orange juice or orange essence as substitute?
