The key element to this chocolate mousse tart recipe is the texture of the mousse. It needs to be light and fluffy; be careful not to press out too many of the air bubbles while folding the mixture to ensure the best results.
This monumental chocolate cake is Fiona Hugues' extreme solution to those times when you need an epic cake to either celebrate something audacious or silly, or to shed tears over as you commiserate with a loved one. Fiona has included every fantastic, wicked treat that she has at some time or other danced around with, or sat and wept with, and enveloped them in a Snickers-like cream and then drizzled in salted caramel sauce.

Many strawberry farms around the country now offer fresh fruit ice creams at the farm gate. My kids shriek and demand a detour whenever they see a painted strawberry sign on a hot summer road trip. Please note: this recipe makes a two-tiered cake; to construct the four-tiered cake pictured here, double all the quantities (except for topping) and first make sure it will fit in the freezer.

If you're looking to try something a little different, then give these fritters a go. They're made with good old-fashioned cans of sardines in oil and will on the table in 10 minutes flat! Also great as finger food at a party.
