For a great send-off morning-tea of a wonderful friend and her exciting travels abroad, I have made this light and fruity Peach and Mango Mousse Cake- ideal for the hot, sunny weather of late! Round, rosy peaches are in season now and their delicious aroma and sweet, juicy flesh make this cake a stand out.
The star of the cake must be the peach and mango mousse, where softly whipped cream is stirred through with fresh peach puree and mango jelly. Between two layers of moist, fluffy vanilla sponge cake is a filling of mousse with finely diced ripe peach pieces. The cake is then topped with a translucent layer of mango jelly and decorated with a flower of peach slices and rosebud strawberry.
Judging by the fact that nearly everyone went for seconds and the whole cake was gone in a matter of seconds… this cake is definitely a keeper!
