Chocolate and Strawberry Mousse Cake 巧克力草莓慕絲蛋糕

Cakes, CATEGORIES | 23rd June 2015 | By

These are gorgeous looking cake, with chocolate sponge cake at the bottom, top with strawberry mousse and chocolate mousse, then have shiny chocolate glaze. It looks like those in fancy cake shops isn’t it?

I love mousse, it is like…mousse, soft but have the moussy texture. Strawberry and chocolate this unbeatable combination, give the sweet and little bit bitterness flavour.

Recipe - Chocolate & Strawberry Mousse Cake

Of course you can add different flavour or just one flavour mousse. For the base, you can bake your own sponge cake, or store-bought one, or even use the digestive biscuits as the base, like cheesecake. 

This cake is not difficult to make, but need tons of patience, to wait the mousse set and go on the other layer. But once the cake is done, you will know all the effort you made is all soooo worth it. Hope you enjoy it like I do!

這個美麗的甜點就像高級餅店買的一樣!底層有薄薄的海綿蛋糕,然後有草莓果肉的慕斯,再有香濃巧克力慕斯,最上層有鏡面巧克力。雖然看似很複雜,但做慕斯其實非常簡單,只要有耐性,慢慢做便會成功,快試試囉! 

Cut the sponge with the mousse ring, I use 6-inch square one. Then place on the baking tray as the base.
