“I found this recipe while I was looking for the Tommy Bahama Fish Taco recipe and thought it sounded fantastic. I found a recipe for white chocolate mousse and prepared it separately, but you can order the swiss white chocolate mousse like they actually use at the Tommy Bahama restaurant (Order Item #90026 at (1-800-34-Swiss) or The amount of white chocolate mousse is approximate. I actually like the cake better on the second day, so I recommend making it and allowing it to sit in the refrigerator overnight before serving if you can!”
