Red Velvet Raspberry Mousse Cake

Jump to Recipe

Valentine’s Day or not, you can treat yourself with a pink dessert all the time. It was Valentine´s Day that inspired me, I wanted to create some pink dessert. Whether you celebrate it or not, this pink dessert always looks cute. Red Velvet Raspberry Mousse Cake consists of a soft red velvet (red or pink, depending on the amount of food coloring) cake, fluffy raspberry mousse, of course, chocolate ganache is a must-have. Red velvet is fluffy and it has a specific taste with a hint of cocoa. Then, I added raspberry mousse made with frozen raspberries. Since frozen raspberries are not easy to mash, I cooked them over a medium heat. If you use fresh raspberries, just mash them and you would also need smaller amount of gelatin, as fresh raspberries are not as watery as the frozen one. Soft cake, fluffy sweet and sour raspberry mousse and sweet chocolate is a tasty combination that also looks great.

    Dobrý den, prosím co znamená v receptu 1 čajová lžička okt při přípravě těsta?

      Dobrý deň, vidím, že ste išli cez Google prekladač. Prosím, nepoužívajte ho, keďže preklady nie sú presné. V recepte nemám surovinu s názvom “okt”. 1 čajová lyžička v ceste je pri: 1 ČL vanilkového extraktu, 1 ČL octu a 1 ČL sódy bikarbóny – osobne si myslím, že Google preložil ocot ako okt
