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 !!!

Kimberly of
Only Creative Opportunities decided on this cake which was great for my inlaws ' party.
I filled and frosted the cake with the chocolate whipped cream and it was much loved by all the guests.
I'm sure this recipe would be great even by itself or filled with some jam or marmelade.
