Baking Challenge

Mini Mousse Cakes

Give your dessert a clever name – and tell us about your recipe.

Door county delights. I made mini cherry cakes with chocolate mousse and mini chocolate cakes with vanilla mousse and a cherry on top.

What was the biggest surprise during your baking journey? Did you use any unconventional approaches? What did you learn along the way? Tell us about it!

Biggest surprise was whipping the cream. It took a lot longer than I expected.

How did you add a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or decoration?

I used door county cherries that were handpicked by myself and my family yesterday.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
