How to make it
- Slice the cake in half horizontally.
- Lightly grease a deep 20 cm (8 inch) springform tin.
- Cut a piece of shiny contact about 2 cm (1 inch) higher than the tin and wrap around the inside of the tin as a collar.
- Put half of the cake in the tin (you won't need the other half, so freeze for next time or make truffles.)
- Pull the contact tight and secure with a paper clip and tape.
To make the mousse
- bring a pan with a little water to a simmer, then remove from the heat.
- Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl, then place the bolw over the pan.
- Don't let the bowl sit in the water.
- Stir the chocolate until melted.
- Beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and creamy, then beat in the cooled melted chocolate.
- Heat the orange juice in a small pan and remove from the heat. Sprinkle with the gelatine and stir until dissolved.
- Cool slightly before beating into the cream, then the softly whipped egg whites.
- Pour the mousse over the cake base and gently tap the tin on the bench to level the surface. Chill for several hours or until firm.
To make the topping
- put the orange juice and sugar in a small pan. Stir over low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
- Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
- Arrange the sliced peach on top of the mousse.
- Carefully pour the topping over the cake.
- Refrigerate for several hours, or until the topping has completely set, before removing the cake from the tin. Carefully pull away the contact.

- Can be kept, covered, in the fridge for 3 days.
