Strawberry Mousse Cake
This recipe has 11 ingredients. I takes 5 hours and 15 minutes of total time, 45 minutes of which is active and makes 10 to 12 servings. I had no problems finding any of the ingredients at my local grocery store and made no ingredient modifications. I did have to make a few changes to the recipe. The first issue was with the time the recipe stated for the gelatin to set. The recipe states for the gelatin to set for 30 minutes, that is way too short. I tried using the mousse after it had sat in the fridge for 30 minutes and the cake layers slide off. I put the gelatin back in the fridge and let it sit for an hour and then it was much easier to deal with. Finally, I changed the frosting recipe. The frosting didn't add any vanilla extract. I have never made frosting without vanilla or almond extract, so I added a small amount of both and then set it in the fridge until I frosted the cake. This helped the frosting not to be runny and the flavor was great with the addition of the extracts. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
