Mango Mousse Cake

I love mango but it is not good to health from the view of herbalist.   I need to be in very good control, stay away as possible.   Well, this occasion is not me eating the heavenly fruit alone but share with friends.  In two days will be Kurt’s birthday, so here is the mango mousse cake.   HAPPY BIRTHDAY to KURT in advance!  

The bottom is a soft sponge cake.  Mango mousse is simply mango, cream and egg.  Enjoy it with a vertical cut.   The soft cake and fragrant mousse amalgamated and fusioned nicely, like marriage in perfect harmony, complementing each gorgeously.  It’s the first trial and declared successful!  Yum!
