BOF Mini Mousse Cakes

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!

No idea how they pulled this off in 4 hours! At 5 hours, we’ve only got 4 prepped to photograph! We tasted and, while the flavors are good, the cake is just a little over-baked and the gelatin a little to obvious in the fruit flavored mousse. Perhaps, there needs to be a new category, "Looks pretty, but not worth the calories."

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

We’re absolutely determined to complete all 10 weeks without deviating from the Brandy Old Fashioned theme.. so far, so good.

How did you do?

Feeling humbled.
