2. Close the spring form pan and then pour the peanut butter mousse on top of the cake layer. Let set in the chiller overnight. (Make sure you cover and seal the pan with cling wrap to make it air tight)
3. Take out the set cake from the chiller. Pop out the cake from the spring form pan using a piping bag with a big round tip, pipe the whipped cream on top of the peanut butter mousse layer.
