Lemon Ice Cream Mousse Cake

I decided to make this Lemon Ice Mousse Cream for L's birthday two days ago since I had some lemons and oranges that needed to use up.Everyone loved it as this ice cream cake tasted so nice and fresh.
A refreshing Lemon Ice Cream Mousse cake with the combination of fresh lemon juice and orange juice, also added benefit of some Vitamin A and natural Vitamin C is much more effective than the synthetic one.

Happy Birthday, dear L
& Happy Thanksgiving to all Friends :)

2 cold Eggs
30g Ice water

  48. Hi,I baked this cake on my husband's birthday. May I know where you get your chocolate emulco and what brand? colour of my cake turn out not as dark as yours. Lemon sauce melt when I put cake back to chiller, can share with me the step of double boiler mixture, is it must turn really thick? and also the sauce a bit too litter to cover the whole cake. Over all we love the cake, thank you for the advice I will try next round.

  49. @soh
    Hi Soh, Happy belated Birthday to your loved ones :)
    You can get the choc emulco from PH, add a little more choc emulco if you prefer a darker cake.
    You're right the sauce is just enough to cover the cake thinly but if you prefer more and thicker sauce you can use 1 1/2 recipe and cook it for another 2-3 minutes. I didn't cook the sauce to very thick because it is not easy to spread the thick sauce on the cake as you can see my last picture, the sauce is dripping from the side of the cake. If you find the cake is too soft, it is better to eat it straight from the freezer.

  50. Hi Anncoo, is me again, this time I am baking this cake for my sister's birthday on 22/1/12.
    I have a pack of Top flour, may I know can replace it? if yes, do I need to take note any change?
    Thank you for all your time and advice.

    1. Hi Soh,
      Sorry I'm not sure top flour can be used for sponge cake or not. You can keep your top flour in the fridge for longer life span.

    2. Wonderful cake yummy...

      I just want to ask a question if you don't mind ....

      Can I omit yolks from the filling and the glaze

      because some of my family members don't like eggs in frosting ..

  51. thank you so much :) very good

  52. Thank you :) What a beautiful cake!

  53. Wonderful cake yummy...

    1. Hi Hema,

      Without the egg yolk the glaze will not set but you can use gelatine instead.
