Joyeux Anniversaire Grace -- Charlotte aux baies

It's my friend Grace's birthday, so I designed her a cake with the assistance of Winnie.

I think making presents means so much more and the best. And it saves the hassle of finding a present!

Stay gorgeous, bubbly, healthy always and hope you have a great birthday!

Peter a dit…

took about 2 hours but got to let the mousse set over 24 hrs I reckon for it to be very firm. But it went alright for 16~ hours.

Thanks Indi! I was scared it wasn't going to turn out good since it was my first time trying a mousse cake.
