At work I am going to make Chocolate Mousse tower, layering mousse in PVC pipe, but I cant remember if there is anything I have to do to prepare the pipe for the mousse... nothing comes to mind. Does anyone know what to do?

Put a band of cellophane just to make sure it will slide out easily.

I also spray my cellophane with "Pam" type spray so the mousse releases cleanly from the cellophane.

Will that make the mousse smooth? If there are any inconsistencies in the cellophane, it will show up on the mousse.

Where would one go to buy cellophane?

Sorry to confuse you we don't really use cellophane, it's just another word for thin plastic. We use acitate(which I can't spell), it is sold in this industry in rolls from many suppliers. This is the same plastic that kids use to place their school reports in. It's thicker than cellophane so it won't wrinkle.

When you spray the plastic with "Pam" the mousse won't stick to the plastic leaving the sides as smooth as the mousse was. Some mousses have more air pockets in it than others so it probably won't be perfectly smooth (you can tap your mold on the table to release excess air pockets). The mousse will release cleanly from the sprayed plastic side.
