I'm looking for a great lemon mousse recipe to fill a cake... and I mean
FILL. The plan is to only use one 9" round cake and have a good inch or
two of mousse inside... if you've ever eaten the Olive Garden lemon
crumb cake you might know what I'm after.
I'm open to any type of suggestions... I'm a bit at a loss... although
I'm kind of liking the idea of maybe making it cheese (mascarpone?)
based. The only kicker is that it cannot conatain gelatin... Birthday
girl is a vege.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... and I'm a first time
poster... so be gentle.
Try Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, and your supermarkets. Chocolate, Lime,
or Lemon Mousses are pretty rare around here so I don't think Santa
Monica has lime or lemon mousses but chocolate is kind of popular so you
have to grab them fast.
Right. Lemon curd is soft so it needs something to stiffen it up and
whipped cream won't do that well enough to hold up a layer of cake. I
haven't eaten that dessert at Olive Garden so I don't know what flavor
we're shooting for, but more than one copycat recipe called for cream
cheese and the pictures looked like the filling needed to have more
body than whipped cream would give it.
