Slice of Chocolate Mousse Cake

I really liked the look of the tiramisu cake surrounded with lady finger sponges which I’d made a week ago and decided to whip up another cake with a similar look.

The cake consists of 2 layers of springy genoise sponge (brushed with rum or whisky), 1 layer of dark chocolate mousse, 1 layer of chocolate mascarpone cream and a thin layer of chocolate glaze. The resulting layered cake is then surrounded with lady finger sponges.

Chewy Blondies with Dessicated Coconut

I’m actually not really sure what blondies are. I think they are the “opposite” of brownies. These chewy and moist sweets were made with white chocolate and sprinkled with dessicated coconut. I’m normally not a fan of coconut, but it worked out well in this case.

Tiramisu Cake

I made this cake for my mum’s 60th birthday. It consisted of 3 layers of genoise sponge, 3 layers of mascarpone cream, surrounded by lady finger sponge and topped with Dutch-processed cocoa (I used Valrhona).

The sponge layers were soaked with Amaretto (almond liquer) and expresso coffee. The cake was assembled 2 days before it was served to allow the flavours to “develop”.

Available for Purchase: 10-inch Tiramisu Cake, 2 layers of sponge and 2 layers of mascarpone cream @ Price of S$58.00, Chocolate Variation with Chocolate Genoise & Chocolate Cream @ S$60.00
