Raspberry Mousse Cake

I was inspired to make a mousse cake for Valentine’s Day, mostly because I’ve been watching too much of Zumbo’s Just Desserts and I want to make fancy things like he makes. I’m not quite there yet.

It’s a raspberry mousse with sponge cake on the bottom, and fresh raspberries inside. The decor is fresh raspberries, sugared with white, black, and gold sugars.


My French baking book calls this a Romanov. I made it for my Dad’s birthday. It’s a sponge cake on the bottom and a white wine bavarian cream on top, with fresh strawberries on top and an orange juice glaze. I waited about 3 seconds too long to pour the glaze, so it turned out lumpy, but it was delicious!
