Mango Mousse Cake

mango mousse. mango jelly. almond dacquoise. pineapple & mango compote.

A simple mango mousse cake brings back chunks of memories for me. I could count a million times i had it since a child.

It was the failproof cake for most of our family occasions (either mango, pandan or chocolate)

It was the first ever cake i bought on my own at the age of 7. A classic Jack's Place mango mousse for Mum's birthday.

It is the cake i'll pick at Bakerzin when feeling undecisive; which always happens.

It is one unerring flavour suitable for folks of all ages. Mangoes are nothing new right?

In my version i hosted fresh mango mousse with mango jelly slices on almond dacquoise instead of a sponge base. The jelly was prepared in a separate mould, chilled to solidify before embedding it within the mousse. No use of mango essence or extracts here cause i believe nothing beats the goodness of real fruits.

So glad to have mastered this! For a while i've been attempting various recipes in search of a good & unfailing method. The cream-based mousses are often too mushy and shortlived, whereas this had a lasting form and great texture. Gonna stick with this custard-based technique period.

No need for Bakerzin's mango dosages anymore!

    Didn't know that mango mousse is your choice when BakerZin is concerned... I thought you are a tiramisu or chocolate lover =)
