A post that was long due…my hands were itching to make something sweet … been a long long long time. Actually I’m quite looking fwd to the Monday as my Pierre Herme book is arriving… lots of more treats coming i can assure u that.Made this cake last evening as some friends coming over for monopoly….yes its monopoly Sunday again but this time we’re playing the Hong Kong monopoly … not the usual London one.Have to get going and get everything ready…so i’ll leave u all with the recipe …

For The Base

  • 60gms digestive biscuits
  • 30gms melted butter

For the Green Apple Mousse

  • 100 gms green apple puree
  • 20 gms egg white
  • 20 gms caster sugar
  • 60 ml cream
  • 1 1/2 leaves gelatin

For the Passion Fruit Mousse

  • 60 ml passion fruit puree
  • 30 gms egg white
  • 30 gms sugar
  • 90 ml cream
  • 1 1/2 leaves gelatin

For the jelly layer

  • 50 ml water
  • 30 ml kiwi liqueur
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 leaf gelatin

For the base, crush the biscuits and pour in the melted butter, mixing well.Then press into a 8 inch cake rim lined with foil.Chill.
Now the first layer is the apple mousse.Start with pureeing one granny smith apple(cut into pieces and boil and blend).Whip up the egg whites till soft peaks form and add the sugar.Set aside.Now whip up the cream till it holds shape and mix in the apple puree.Soften the gelatin leaves and add that at this stage and fold in the egg whites.Pour in the tin and chill for 1-2 hrs.
Repeat with step 2 the passion fruit mousse….follow the same as step 1.
Finally for the jelly layer melt the sugar in the water and add the liqueur and then the malted gelatin.Slice an apple and place over the passion fruit layer and then pour the jelly over it.Now chill over night.

Alrite now guess what … we didn’t end up playing monopoly … and no one turned up … and so i got this beautiful cake all to myself :)))) and another good thing that came ut of it is that i got some nice pictures for my next blog post ….
Another thing i didnt do earlier was enter this cake in the ongoing HHDD mousse contest.This being my first entry ever i hope it does well….Helen i hope I’m doing this right…linking it up to Barbara and Helen .

Oh my goodness, this is beautiful!!!!!!!!

I would love to make this tonight….except with me being in Canada, I don’t really have the same ingredients available….would you be horribly offended if I made some changes (passion fruit here is hard to find, and I’ve never seen kiwi liqueur or leaves of gelatin)? It’s SO pretty! Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!

noreply@blogger.com (gilly)

Hi Kate! Oh my, this is so gorgeous – I LOVE the presentation! Green Apple and Passionfruit sounds like a wonderful combination!

I can’t believe no one showed for Monopoly! But as you say… more for you! 😉

noreply@blogger.com (Brooke)

noreply@blogger.com (Kate)

mrbunsrocks of course u can do what u want with the recipe…i’d do the same if i were u.can easily substitte powder for leaves and use any fruit puree u think will go together.Passion fruit is not available here as of now but 4 months ago when they were i pureed them and froze it, for days like these.

gilly …can u believe it…it was their loss not mine !!!:)))) next time i’ll invite all my blogger friends over..that way i know for sure it’ll b a hit.

shawnda thank you very much

noreply@blogger.com (Culinarily Curious)

Beautiful. I love the colors, the shapes, the geometry here. I echo other comments — are you *sure* you’re not a professional at this? You *should* be. 🙂

noreply@blogger.com (Peabody)

This was sooo beautiful…I had to vote for it for HHDD.

noreply@blogger.com (Kate)

peabody…thank you so much.It makes me very happy to know that someone out there thought my cake was worthy of a prize.

culinarily curious , i swear i’m not :)) though i would love to get some professional training.

rose in the past i have been impatient and ruined many mousee/cheesecakes but then someone told me …atience is a virtue…and i was like hmm.. . and then i the next time i got my cake out of the fridge and left it for a bit .then kept a warm cloth around the sides and voila …it came out…a piece of cake aint it :)))

What a gorgeous cake – and I love the presentation with the ribbon and the apples! Even if it’s the wrong post for this comment: Happy Birthday! (discovered your blog through Helen’s)

noreply@blogger.com (swee)

hey again! I hope you get to read this comment. I’m planning to make this cake this friday / saturday for my 2nd bday cake (when it comes to birthday, i dont mind lotsa cakes. haha)

for the apple puree, you said boil it. How long do i have to boil them ? and I think i wouldnt be able to get passionfruit puree, so what do you think would be the next suitable flavour ??
would you mind replying me via email ? mine’s swee.san@gmail.com

thanks alot!

noreply@blogger.com (yun)

hello! i’ve always wanted to try out this recipe but i’m afraid i face the same questions as the reader above (swee). wondering if you could email me the info on the puree? (is it ready made? or you need to make from scratch?) thanks for your help! i can be reached at kongshuyun@gmail.com

Thanks for good article. Hope to see more soon.
