Strawberries and cream mousse cake recipe

Part 1

  • 100 grams cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 50 grams sugar
  • 500 grams whole frozen strawberries (we freeze strawberries that are not quite good enough for display/decorating – a great way to use less than perfect strawberries and minimize waste)
  • 200 grams melted white chocolate
  • 100ml water (boiled)
  • 15 grams gelatine (powdered or leaf)

Method

  1. Add cream cheese and sugar to a mixing bowl and cream until smooth
  2. Add strawberries and mix until they are broken through to the desired consistency
  3. Dissolve gelatine in boiled water and stir in the melted white chocolate
  4. Allow to sit while part 2 is made
  5. For more flavour and colour simply add more strawberries

Part 2

  • 1kg fresh thickened cream
  • 200 grams castor sugar
  • 50 grams stabilizer
  • Pink colour (if needed)

Method

  1. Whip all ingredients until thickened to form a peak with the whisk
  2. Add part 1 to part 2 and mix until smooth and combined
  3. Use in the cake as required; before spreading on the cake you may need to allow the mix to sit and stabilize for 5 minutes

Strawberry syrup

  • 500 grams sugar
  • 200 grams water
  • 100 grams Baitz strawberry liqueur

Method

  • Boil water and sugar to make the syrup, simmer for 1 minute
  • Add liqueur and store in fridge

Cake assembly

Use a quality sponge recipe for your sponge and then, from here, it is simply a cake assembly process.

You will require a:

  • 6 inch high sponge
  • 200 grams fresh whipped cream
  • 5 strawberries
  • Glazing gel
  • White chocolate decorations

Assembly

  1. Cut sponge into 3 layers and spread them out
  2. Brush strawberry syrup onto base layer
  3. Add mousse to a piping bag and pipe a nice even layer over the base sponge
  4. Add the second layer and brush again with syrup (enough to soak in and moisten the sponge)
  5. Pipe a layer of fresh cream
  6. Add the third layer of sponge and syrup
  7. Pipe another layer of mousse on top of the sponge
  8. The layer cake is now ready for its decorations; the decorations are up to the user – we love to use glazed strawberries and white chocolate decorations as everybody loves them
  9. Enjoy!!!!
