Chocolate Mousse Cake with Chocolate Crust 朱古力慕絲凍餅

I received feedback from several readers not long ago. They said they all love how decadent my Chocolate Mousse Cake was.

Green Tea and White Chocolate Mousse Cake with Red Bean Filling 綠茶白朱古力慕絲蛋糕(紅豆餡)

I made this mousse cake for my friend’s dad last week. This green tea mousse is the only mousse cake that contains raw egg yolks. The yolks make the green tea mousse richer in taste.
