Orange Chocolate Mousse Cake

Decided to combine chocolate mousse and a cake to create an orange chocolate mousse cake.

I didn’t want the orange flavor to be too strong so it’s only in the base. The 2 other layers are pure chocolate.

Optional: You can change the recipe to include chocolate in all 3 layers; same with the orange zest, or even add a layer of orange jelly in the middle layer.
