Sometimes things are black and white 🙂

whole-all

Investigator asked for a chocolate mousse cake for his birthday.

So Insightful, trying to be different asked for a white mousse cake for his birthday. Being insightful, he arrived at the conclusion that having a cake the exact opposite doesn’t make him different. So he asked for a different topping and decorations as well.

Chocolate Mousse cake

Same as here, except I added 2 heaped tblsp of instant chocolate pudding to the mousse to make it more stable and then it doesn’t need to be frozen. Writing on top was piped with melted white chocolate.

White chocolate mousse cake (no bake!)

Base:

150 gr white gluten-free cookies (vanilla or petit-buerre)
100 gr margarine or butter, melted (was a bit much, will try with 75 next time)

Mix together and level in the bottom of the cake pan.

White chocolate mousse:

1 box whipping cream (250 ml)
1 packet white chocolate (100 gr)
4-5 tbsp water
2 heaped tblsp instant vanilla pudding

Melt chocolate and water in the microwave. Mix until smooth (I had lumps still, didn’t make a difference). Mixture should be liquid enough to pour when warm (not hot).

Whip cream until stiff. Add melted white chocolate and continue beating. Add vanilla pudding and continue beating until smooth. Place on base and level top.

Vanilla cream:

1 box whipping cream (250 ml)
200 ml milk
1 packet instant vanilla pudding

Beat all together until creamy and smooth. Place on mousse and level. Refrigerate overnight (can probably refrigerate less, I didn’t try).

Decorate with melted bittersweet chocolate and decorations of choice. Decorations with food coloring should be placed immediately before serving as the color runs afterwards (the picture above has the few decorations I put before I remembered this 🙂 I added more afterwards).
