Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake

Whenever someone at work that I like quits, I like to make a somewhat over-the-top dessert.  These have included a strawberry jello poke cake, chocolate chip cheesecake, and this time, a triple chocolate mousse cake.
Layer 1:  A flourless dark chocolate cake
Layer 2:  A semisweet chocolate mousse
Layer 3:  A white chocolate mousse/whipped cream.
I saw it made on America's Test Kitchen a few weeks ago and it looked amazing.  I finished the first layer tonight, which was melted chocolate, butter, vanilla and egg yolks, with beaten egg whites and brown sugar.  It smells amazing.  I'll finish the other two layers tomorrow, for the potluck on Wednesday.
