Cool slightly. In a medium bowl, stir together sugar and cocoa; Add the whipping cream and vanilla. Using an electric mixer, beat the mixture while scraping the bottom of bowl occasionally.When the mixture has thickened, add the dissolved gelatin and beat until well blended. Cool the chocolate mousse in the refrigerator until you are ready to assemble the cake.
Assemble the Cake: When the chocolate cheesecake has cooled, use a spatula to spread the chocolate mousse on top of the cheesecake. Sprinkle shaved chocolate on the mousse and spray aerosol whipping cream on cake slices before serving.
