Monarch Butterfly Birthday Cake

This cake is any chocoholic's dream. The top tier is three  8" dark chocolate cake layers sandwiched with chocolate-almond mousse. It is sitting atop 10" of vanilla bean chocolate chip pound cake with whipped cream cheese filling, and the entire thing is en-robed in velvety dark chocolate ganache. The type of cake that just needs to be eaten with an icy cold class of milk! I made it for one of my friend's mom's surprise 50th birthday party. The little feather monarch butterflies held a special significance to their family and were ordered online to ensure their accuracy. The number '50' topper is handmade from gumpaste and completely edible!
