My first ever attempt in making a Mousse Cake. Was nervous before making it because, if I stuff this up, my dear friend won't have a cake for her birthday.
The most fun bit in the process of making this cake was decorating!!
Ingredients for sponge cake:
For green tea sponge cake: Mix egg yolks, sugar, water and cornoil together and stir till mixture is smooth.
Add in flour and green tea powder and mix evenly.
Whisk egg white with sugar till stiff peak. Fold in egg yolk mixture and pour mixture into a 9" square tin.
Leave cake to cool on wire rack and slice cake into 2 slices. Place 1 slice of cake into a 9" square cake ring.
Mousse: Heat milk till warm, then add in castor sugar and green powder. Stir till evenly mixed. Fold in egg yolks and stir. Becareful not to allow the egg yolk to overcook and it will become lumpy.
Pour half of the mousse filling onto the prepared cake ring and then top up with the other slice of green tea sponge cake.
Take out the cake from the cake ring and sieve green tea powder on top and decorate as desired.
