THE DARING BAKERS’ APRIL 2011 CHALLENGE: MAPLE MOUSSE SERVED IN AN EDIBLE CONTAINER
The Daring Kitchen: "The April 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Evelyne of the blog Cheap Ethnic Eatz. Evelyne chose to challenge everyone to make a maple mousse in an edible container. Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite from April 27th to May 27th at http://thedaringkitchen.com!"
This was a great challenge. I have never made mousse. Pudding, yes. Mousse, no. It is very similar to making a stabilized whip cream which I have made on occasion. The maple mousse had a wonderfully delicate flavor and smooth mouth feel. (That could be because of all of the heavy whipping cream that was used in the making.) The maple added just enough sweet to accent the smoked almonds that were in the nut dish as well as garnish on top. It was simply wonderful.
