Mango Mousse Cake (芒果慕斯蛋糕)

自从自己会做蛋糕以后,就很少在外面蛋糕来吃了。只是有在蛋糕店或café的橱窗望一望,看看有什么蛋糕比吸引的可以偷偷点子。那天心血来潮,在“D” Cafe喝咖啡,叫老公order一个巧克力慕斯蛋糕试试看。蛋糕第一口咬下去,我老公有order错吗个是mud cakemousse cake。老公只有一种巧克力蛋糕排在那里嘛!没有啊。。。我不甘心,即刻打开menu检视一下,果然餐牌里的巧克力慕斯蛋糕和在我面前的是一模一的,只是照片里的蛋糕好像比完美和柔,而在我的面前的是一个硬蹦蹦块类mud cakemousse cake。因为付695(马币21块钱一片糕,心痛到要命),所以只好乱乱吃了一点就算。很生气,即刻去超市买了材料回家立志自己做一个慕斯蛋糕。芒果慕斯蛋糕一直都在我的to do list里面的,正是芒果季节,还等什么,就是它了  -  期待已久 的芒果慕斯蛋糕。

翻查了很多家,忽然看到All That Matters家的芒果慕斯蛋糕做得很美,所以决定用了她的食谱。不只是好看,食谱也是我觉得很赞的哟!
