The Chocolate Mousse Tuxedo Cake at Costco is a delicious and impressive dessert that’s perfect for any special occasion. Tuxedo cakes are made fresh, in-house at the Costco bakery and they are a Costco fan favorite bakery item. You can generally find Costco Kirkland Signature Tuxedo Chocolate Mousse Cakes available year round in the refrigerated cases in the Costco Bakery section, near the custom Costco sheet cake stand and order forms.
Costco Tuxedo cake is made with rich dark layers of chocolate cake and filled with layers of creamy white chocolate mousse and chocolate mousse with brownie pieces. The cake is topped with a layer of dark chocolate ganache and chocolate sticks (curls). This is one of Costco’s more impressive looking cakes – it looks far more expensive than it is! A comparable cake from a local bakery would easily cost 3x or more. We recommend this Costco dessert, it is a crowd pleaser for adults and kids alike.
The cake itself is incredibly moist and flavorful. The rich chocolate cake pairs well with the light and airy chocolate mousse.
It’s a great option if you’re looking for an impressive and delicious birthday cake, or special occasion dessert for holidays, retirements, anniversaries, office celebration, etc. It’s an impressive looking layer cake, and it tastes great – it’s a popular party cake option.
