“A nice points friendly dessert:) Serves 8 at 4 points each if you are following a weight watchers points plan. I like to just dump the remaining mousse on top so that it dribbles down the sides, then throw the flake on top so that it is messy and falls onto the plate around the cake. It does look messy, but I think it also looks cool, especially if it is on a brightly coloured trendy big platter. But that's me!!!! :) I have included the points for ingredients in brackets.”
