An expired birthday cake ~ Mango cheese mousse cake ~ 芒果幕欺蛋糕

This is a expired post rather then a expired cake :p Like i have mention in my previous post that my wifi is dead...causes all my bakes and cooks queueing up to be post..LOL  This is a cake i make for Mother's Day cum hubby's birthday. The previous cake (Rhumba Mousse Cake) i make for Father's Day is actual cum my birthday cake...hehe
It is a coincident that hubby's and myself's birthday (mine) fall on father's day and the other on mother's day. Save my job one stone kills two birds..=p
这是个过期的蛋糕贴子. 还记得我的wifi出状况吗? 就因为这样贴子托到现在才贴上=p
这蛋糕是二合一, 就是庆祝母亲节和老公的生日. 上个贴子伦巴幕欺蛋糕, 也是二合一, 是庆祝父亲节和我mui mui的生日呢!!


Another cake that uses  fruit, mango as main ingredient,  This mango again is from my back yard, its gong gong's mango  tree :D Have you heard of Kuini fruit or Kuini mango?? It is another type of mango, if i am not mistaken it is only found in eastern malaysia. Mangifera Odorata its scientific name, known as Kuwin (Kuini) Mango or Mangifera odorata  is light orange in color with a juicy sweetness and can only be eaten fully ripe. It has pungent scents, very meaty flesh and easily get addicted once you bite into it ..hahaha
又一个水果蛋糕..^_^ 用了本地杧果(Kuini). 你有听过这种芒果吗?? 味甜芒香、果肉厚多汁风味怡人是种吃了会很回味的一种芒果. 


This is the Kuini fruits that is  still on the tree.
家里后院种的Kuini芒果树..看看挂在树上的芒果..很诱人吧!!

Slices of Kuini mango ready to be blend into puree.
Don't you think this is a lovely natural colour??
削皮的Kuini果肉橙黄色, 要搅拌成果泥了..




Decorated with fresh fruits local mulberries. These berries are from my mum's house. 
用了妈妈家种的桑苺来做装饰..下回会再给大家分享桑苺果酱哦!





See that lovely teaspoon there? I love it very much. It a gift from a dear friend (Jessie).
She is so kind to send me this lovely teaspoon and a rectangle pie baking tin. I would like to say Thank you very much (感恩) to dear Jessie.

His first mother's day gift for me..isn't that sweet!!

Tangerine Orange Cheese Mousse Cake (柳橙乳酪慕斯蛋糕)

recipe adapted from Carol 自在生活 with my modification in purple
(the recipe is in chinese, i am trying my best to translate in english =p)
1 heart shape mousse ring (18.9 cm x 17.8 cm x 5cm)
(i use a heart shape baking tin 18 cm x 16 cm x 7.5 cm)

Ingredients:
A. side  sponge finger

30 g castor sugar 
50 g plain yogurt

25 g castor sugar
(I am serving this cake my kids so i did not add egg white)

Part 1. To do the side sponge finger
  • Draw out 2 heart shape out line from the heart shape mousse ring or baking tin onto a parchment paper. 1 for base - draw 1 cm smaller and one for adding into the mousse layer draw 2.5cm smaller.
  • In another piece of parchment paper draw a 10 cm length and 30 cm width for side sponge finger. ( i turn the parchment paper around and use the other side with no ink on)
  • Separate egg yolks and whites and put into different mixing bowls. (do not have any yolk, water or grease/oil in the egg white)
  • Sieved flour, set. aside.
  • Preheated oven at 170C.

1) Draw the shape of the heart shape baking tin on a piece of parchment paper. Piped out the sponge batter onto parchment paper.
2) This is the baked and ready for use sponge cake. (heart shape 2 pieces)
3) This is the finger sponge batter piped onto a piece of parchment paper.
4) Cut the baked finger sponge along the middle so that you can have two rolls equal size.
5) Lined the heart shaped baking tin with cling foil. Left 2 inches extra over hang outside the 
baking tin.
6) Put in the first piece of heart sponge into the base of the baking tin. Heart shaped sponge have to be 1 cm smaller then the baking tin to let room for the sponge finger to sit in.
7) Lined the finger sponge along the side of the heart shaped baking tin.

Part 2. To do mousse filling:
  • Whisk (a) uht whipping cream and castor sugar until medium soft peak form. Set aside or keep in refrigerator covered. 
pic B (preparing the cheese mousse filling)

1) Peel and cut mango into slices and puree in a blender.
2) Whisk whipping cream in a cold bowl until it is in stiff and not dry. (do not over whisk or the liquid and fat will be separated and it will be very lumpy and not smooth)
3) Soaked gelatine leaves in cold and icy water for 5 minutes. When it is soften, squeeze out the water.
4) Put soften gelatine leaves into warm mango puree (i zap this puree in mircowave for 30 seconds). Set aside and let it cool. (make sure gelatine leaves are totally melted)
5) Beat soften cream cheese until it is smooth. (i am using mascarpone cheese. i just whisk it with a wire whisk lightly until it is smooth)

    1. Jozeyln,
      This is actually not hard to make this cake.
      Just prepared the sponges a day ahead. Then make the filling the next day, assemble it, send it to the fridge. When it's ready just add on the fruits. Then it done!

  11. Hi Doreen,

    Your husband and you are having the same birthday!!! What a co-incidence! Nice that you didn't have to bake too many birthday cakes but with all the effort that you bake this beautiful cake... I reckon you can bake at least 5 simple cakes!

    Happy belated birthday to you!
