Thank you! I will try to post more details in the future.
@Caroline PohYou need to adjust the cake ring to about 1/2 inches wider than your sponge cake and spread the mousse on top and the sides of the sponge cake.
Kavithanair04 ~ Thank you. There are only two reasons when you whipping cream melts. (1) the jelly is too hot and (2) whipping cream not completely set.Sometime I put the mousse cake overnight and make the jelly topping the next morning.I suggest you put your mousse cake in the freezer for one hour before you add the jelly toppng.
i try orange mousse today. I can wait to taste. i tell you how it is. cccris.blogspot.com
Wowwww,makes my mouth watering.Btw,may i know ur camera brand n type ? thx.Jenny
Hi, Ann.I have just made this cake. It tasted great and the flavours worked together. Unfortunately, I had trouble getting my cake to look as nice as yours. I assembled the cake and the orange mousse together in a springform pan and put it in the fridge overnight to set completely. The next day, I made the jelly topping. I waited for the jelly topping to cool down completely before pouring it onto the cake. Then I waited for the jelly to completely set in the fridge before opening the springform pan. When I opened the springform pan, the sides of my cake (the orange mousse) did not hold its shape and looked quite runny. I am not sure where did I go wrong. Would be great if you can give me some advice.

Wow, this cake looks amazing! How do you cut a cake so nicely? What kind of knives do you use?
Thank you for joining my blog, Anncoo! You've got an amazing one. That cake is gorgeous! I can't believe how perfect the layers are, and the icing on the sides is so perfectly smooth!
Wow, this cake is truly stunning, great job!!! You are welcome to send me a slice!
I have always love reading your blog and trying out the recipes. However i could not achieved high rose sponge (like yours) 🙁 , therefore i need to bake 2X in order to do layer cakes. May I ask you , how long do u beat the sponge and at what speed ? You mentioned thick & fluffy, is it ribbon liked texture ? If yes, i did to that stage but still cannot obtain the height like yours. How high is the sponge using the above recipe ?
Waiting eagerly for your reply. Thanks.
Aileen , the failed baker..
