Mini Fraise Moussecake

It had been a very very heavy weekend last week as I had been busy in my kitchen, baking and constant baking. It is only this morning that I managed to get myself relax a wee bit, enjoying a cup of home brew illy coffee and sitting infront of my computer. I got to say I had missed a big change to show off my talent for this March Daring Baker baking, the celebration cake from Dorie which is marvellous and by having a wee freehand, I can’t imagine how gorgeous the cake may end up to be. But I promise I will post my version on how Dorie’s celebration cake will look like. I had been toying the name, and I will named the next cake, Mary Poppin Cake!

Back to today’s post I would like to share this mini fraise moussecake that I created a few weeks ago. It is a very simple strawberry moussecake as you just need to have sponge cake, strawberry syrup & puree, fresh mousse, strawberry jelly and fresh strawberries.

Ingredients

Cake Base
Cake sponge about 10mm thick.

Strawberry Mousse
Whipping cream 280gm
Strawberry puree 100gm
Strawberry syrup(Monin) 15ml
Egg white 50gm
Granulated sugar 35gm
Gelatin leaf 3envelopes

Puree Jelly Topping
Strawberry Puree 100gm
Gelatin Leaf 1.5envelopes

Decoration
Whole Strawberries
Sliced Strawberries

Method

Make the strawberry mousse
Whisk egg white until foamy. Then, add in granulated sugar gradually and whisk until soft peak form.
Whisk whipping cream and gradually add in Monin strawberry syrup until soft peak form.
Pour strawberry puree into the whipping cream and fold well with a rubber spatula.
Fold meringue into strawberry mixture and gently fold well.
Pour in metled gelatin into the strawberry mixture and gently fold.
Lay the cake based onto the minicake mould.
If want a moist cake, just brush some Monin strawberry syrup onto the surface of the cake.
Place the sliced strawberries onto the side of the minicake mould.
Pour the strawberry mousse into the minicake mould and refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours.

Melt gelatin into the hot strawberry puree. Cool it down until 50C to puree jelly. Pour it over the top.
Evenly place the whole strawberries on the top and refrigerate for half an hour.
Unmould the mini strawberry moussecake by warming the minicake mould.

This mini fraise moussecake looks beautiful, divine and not difficult to make and assemble, definite will charm your guests!

Love Sunny Yaw
