Summer strawberry mousse cake
5
1 Review.
This is a typical summer cake with strawberries but in another way of making the cake bottom. Instead of a soft cake bottom, this recipe use a almond paste with egg white for the bottom that makes it a wonderful combination together with the strawberry mousse. This recipe have an ingredients named Kesella, but it is possible to change it to cream cheese, curd cheese, fromage frais, or quark with the same fat percent. To make the mousse hard you might need to add one gelatin sheet or two.
