Cake musing

                  Wow had a hectic few days since last Friday. I had 3 cake orders, almost 3 days running, although of course it was booked ahead which allowed me to plan the buying of the ingredients and then baking, frosting and the case of the Trifle Cheese cake, the assembling of the Trifle and the last one, ie the Raspberry Mousse cake.

                 The Raspberry Mousse cake was the easiest of all as being a Mousse cake, there was no baking involved; just a crunchy biscuit base; doing the mousse, setting it overnite and then doing the Raspberry topping the next day.  Having learnt so many types of mousse over the years by an excellent Chef and selling same, I decided that it was high time that I came out from under the wings of my mentors and try my hand at creating something myself and this Raspberry Mousse cake was my first..  I made this in honour of a wedding registration of my child and last week when a regular customer requested me to do a mousse cake, I recommended my Raspberry Mousse cake.  If she had not lived down the road from mine, I would Not have recommended a Mousse cake as the shop that I purchase my ingredients ran out of Ice Cream box as the mousse cake, which had gelatine in it, would probably melt.
