White chocolate mousse cake??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

For anyone who knows what I'm talking about I am in love with Dufflet Pastries white chocolate mousse cake. It has moist white sponge cake with a white chocolate mousse and a light strawberry compote filling. Then they finish the cake with white chocolate curls all around... oh man it's yummy.

Ok, so recently I bought a veryyyy similar cake at a grocery store: No Frills. Now I'm not trying to compare the two as obviously the do differ! However, it got me thinking that I must try to make this!

Soooo any ideas as to how to come with a cake like this? If you have a light white cake recipe and a white chocolate mousse recipe I would be ever so grateful for it! Also, how exactly do I create white chocolate curls? Or can I buy them pre-made?

Thanks so much,

S.

I know Dufflet's very well. And for sure anything you get at No Frills won't compare, especially since they don't have an in-house bakery.

If you're looking for scratch cakes, try FromScratchSF's vanilla cake. It's fantastic.

Google for a White Chocolate Mousse recipe. I found these:

I don't really consider this a mousse.

This one is more like I would make a traditional chocolate mousse.

And to make chocolate curls, you can do it two ways. Depending on how big they need to be, you can either use a vegetable peeler or a metal cheese slicer and "peel" the chocolate. Or you can melt the chocolate onto a metall cookie sheet, put it in the fridge to cool, but not harden, and then use a metal bench scraper to create your curls. It sounds hard, but it's quite simple and I've done it like this many times.

These chocolate mousse recipes sound interesting but are they stable enough to use as a cake filling. I really would like to find a nice recipe that will be stable enough to use as a cake filling.
