Drumroll, please! I present to you this epic, stunning and show-stopping mango mousse cake! This master piece will capture your eyes, heart and taste buds! It’s been one of the most popular recipes on my blog, social media and YouTube, all for a good reason. It’s not only beautiful, it’s also delicious! This mango mousse cake is made with loads of real mango and lots of fruity flavor. If you’re looking for a fruity, light and airy cake for your next special occasion, this is the cake for you.
I love making mousse cakes and this one is especially fun to make! For the base, I start out with a fluffy sponge cake layer that’s soaked with mango juice. If you want to turn this cake into an easy, no-bake recipe, just use a golden Oreo crust. Combine 1 1/2 cups of Oreo crumbs with 1/4 cup melted butter and press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan. For the mango mousse, I use fresh mango puree, which adds so much incredible mango flavor. You can also use frozen mango, just thaw it out before placing into the food processor. To make the mousse layer as light as possible, I fold in home-made whipped cream.
And let’s talk about that stunning jello topping! I used peach-flavored gelatin, but you can also use mango juice and regular gelatin. Just make sure to dissolve the gelatin completely, then add it to the juice. The trick to getting the fruit to stay in place is to lightly press them into the mousse and pour a thin layer of peach gelatin. Allow that first thin layer to set, then pour the remaining gelatin over the top. This way, the fruit and berries are locked in place!
