The Cake Slice : Key West Cake with Mango Mousse and Ginger Lime Cream


The cake selected for July's baking was Key West Cake with Mango Mousse and Ginger Lime Cream from Sky High Irresistible Layer Cakes.
The base for the cake was a simple Genoise filled with a Mango mousse made with mango pureed with some sugar, gelatine ( in Italy we find very easily sheets of gelatine which I never know well how to convert so I'm afraid I used a little too much), and whipped cream ,which I diminished because I wanted the mango to be very present. The whole cake is then frosted with a whipped cream enriched by a wonderful ginger lime curd.
I loved the two flavours together and even wished they would come out more !!!

Your cake looks wonderful and I love how orange your mango filling is - mine was almost the same colour as the frosting.
