For Mousse

  1. Remove stems and rinse strawberries. Blend 400g strawberries into puree.
  2. Cut 200g strawberries in halves, and slice the rest 200g for decorating.
  3. Dissolve gelatin with milk, then heat the milk until gelatin is clear and totally dissolved.
  4. Add sugar to the gelatin mixture, then add in two blended egg yolks and lemon juice.
  5. Whip heavy cream till thick (still looks like liquid, but much thicker), and then pour the strawberry puree and gelatin mixture into the whipped cream. Mix well.


  1. Remove the bottom of the spring form pan (or just use a mousse ring), put the ring on a plate or a cake circle.
  2. Line the bottom with a layer of cake, arrange strawberry halves on the side.
  3. Pour in the mousse, cover with another layer of cake, press the top a little bit to make sure there is no bubbles inside. Decorate the top with strawberries, glaze strawberries with a soft brush, then transfer to refrigerator to chill at least 3 hours.

Note: If it’s difficult to remove the ring, use hot towels to surround the mousse ring to soften the mousse till it can be easily removed from cake.
