I'm trying this for my son's birthday cake tonight. My concern is looking at the recipe calling for 1 1/2 cups sugar sifted 10 times. Is this confectioner's sugar or regular white sugar? I've never heard of having to sift regular sugar 10 times, so that's why I ask. I guess I'll know when I try it huh? Thanks for the recipe though. The cake batter tasted amazing, so I'm assuming the cake will be the same!
Okay, made the mousse with actual sugar & it turned out perfectly! The mousse tastes wonderful! Thanks for the recipe Shannon.
I think she means the 10X confectioners sugar.... like Dominos brand. I don't think she means you have to sift it ten times. ;)
gmkcaron, I would have thought the same thing to sift it 10x!!!
This sounds delish and I have a few questions... 1. When you say tube pan, do you mean bundt pan? 2. I'm a little confused at the part where I cut the cake crosswise and fill it with the mousse? If it's a bundt pan, there's already an empty center.....if it's just a round springform pan, do I cut a deep hole in the center? I'm trying to visualize this part of the process and am a little confused...but then again it's really HOT here in Central PA - hehehehehehe!!!!!!
Hope to hear from you soon as I'd like to make this in a day or two......
If you haven't figured it out yet, a tube pan is what you would make an Angel food cake in. It's similar to a bundt pan, but taller with a smooth outside. Cut 1" off the top of the cake and set that part aside. Then hollow out the bottom portion to fill with mouse. Put the top back on and then fill the "hole" part with the cake taken from hollowing out the bottom and the remaining mouse. Hope this helps.
I tried the mousse and its tasty. I think I mess up the gelatin. I added the cool gelatin in the chocolate mousse, but the gelatin was clunky (lumps) and was not distributing evenly in the mousse. What did I do wrong?
hi Im very confused as to how u fill the mousse. first u said to cut the top off i understood that. then i understood the making a cavity. is around all the way in the pan? then how can u put the top back on and then fill the cavity?????? im sorry im jst confused please clarify!!:)
