Notes
  1. Brownies: I prefer to freeze, because it is easier to handle, but you can prepare the dessert, even if you do not freeze.
  2. Recipe adapted by Lorraine Pascale.
  3. Mousse: you will have 4.5 oz - 120 g leftovers, but you can use for decorations.
  4. Glaze: the amount of the glaze is perfect for this cake, but I suggest to prepare more, so that you can glaze the cake in a single step.
