About

The beauty of this mixture is that it can be used in a variety of ways. You can pipe some onto brownie wedges and then drizzle some chocolate syrup.

You can pipe some onto sliced pound cake, drizzle some warmed raspberry jam, and top with fresh raspberries.

I've also cut up pound cake and layered the lemon mousse in a parfait glass along with fresh fruit.

Another option I have tried is to use seedless raspberry jam instead of lemon curd.

This recipe has worked for me in a variety of different ways and it always looks impressive and tastes wonderful.

Yield:

6.0 + some extra, depending on how full you make the cups.
