3 Steps for a perfect gluten free mousse cake

STEP TWO:  Make the mousse mixture and spread it over the cooled cake.

STEP THREE: Chill for a minimum of three hours, allowing the cake to set

Decorating Ideas for the Mousse Cake

There are a few things to keep in mind when decorating a mousse cake. The first is that the mousse should be set before decorating. This can be done by chilling it in the fridge for at least three hours or overnight.

The second is to use fresh, seasonal fruit to decorate the cake. This will make it look more attractive and add flavor and nutrition to the cake.

One simple way to decorate a mousse cake is to top it with fresh berries. You can do this by spreading a layer of whipped cream on top of the cake, then ending it with a layer of berries.

Another option is to pipe the whipped cream around the edge of the cake, then top it with a ring of berries. For a more elaborate decoration, try piping the whipped cream into rosettes or stars around the edge of the cake, then top it with fresh fruit or chocolate curls.

We kept the chocolate mousse cake simple because it tastes insanely delicious as is.
