Chocolate Mousse - to go - where in LA?

Okay, I did a search and I noticed someone recently posed this query for the Westside.
But I am based in Studio City...
I am looking for a super fantastic chocolate mousse -- single serving -- preferably from a bakery rather than at a restaurant, but I am open to all recs.
Anywhere from mid-East Valley to WeHo to Bev Hills -- anywhere within a moderate radius, but forget the Westside unless you deem it worth the trip (!)
I'm talking rich, fluffy, decadent chocolate mousse rather than chocolate mousse layer cake... The kind I had in Paris & Cannes...
Please help to make my birthday memorable!!
Maison du Pan on Pico, but they never seem to have it any more when I go there. They do a lot of things on the whim of the head baker.
Sort of in between your request for a chocolate mousse itself and a chocolate mousse layer cake is the dirt cake at Vanilla Bake Shop, which is unfortunately out of your requested radius. Per the description on their website:
"Each jar of Dirt Cake is layered with bittersweet Callebaut chocolate mousse,
crushed dark chocolate crumbles and sweetened fresh whip cream blended
with crushed Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans."
For my birthday last year, my friend brought me the most darling assortment of mini cupcakes and dessert shots from Vanilla Bake Shop, and one of the shots was the dirt cake. It was excellent - not too much of the cake part - picture of the utter cuteness attached. Sorry it doesn't precisely fit your request, but it was the closest thing of which I could think.
^ while it's useful to learn about this company, it doesn't serve my immediate purposes whatsoever.
I really just want *one* individual serve of chocolate mousse.
Just a simple birthday treat for me.
The minimum you can have shipped to you from that co are nine individual servings...
I asked about the westside mousse. Just fyi, if you ever happen to find yourself on this side of town, I did find mousse at Jamaica's Cakes on Pico near Gateway.
