Ingredients:

Marzipan Mousse
400g Marzipan almond paste (SCM390A)
60g Amaretto almond liquor ca. 28%
200g White chocolate SCHOK WEISS (SCC804)
100g Egg

Fruit Topping
400g Fruit pulp (for example raspberry)
200g Sugar solution (1 part water, 1 part sugar)
6 Sheets gelatin (SCA140)
Soak the gelatin in water, then dissolve it with a bit of sugar solution and mix it with the fruit pulp.

Method:

  1. Heat the eggs in a bain-marie and then cool by stirring.
  2. Mix the Marzipan almond paste and Amaretto into a smooth paste and fold in the cold egg mass.

  4. Apply this mousse to sponge cake base in a cake ring and decorate to finish.

We suggest you reduce the amount of gelatin if the mousse is served from a bowl.
