Strawberry Mousse Cake.........It's his Birthday

Yes, I know since last few posts I have been playing around Strawberries a lot. Strawberry Swiss Roll, Strawberry Shortcake Shoooters and now Strawberry Mousse Cake - they all have Strawberries in common. It's my husband's birthday and he loves strawberry flavor so I was treating him with desserts made with it.

I baked this cake for his birthday party but you don't need any special occasion to bake a cake. As we all know it must be someone's birthday somewhere so have a slice :) Moreover it's holiday season what else we need to dig into a slice of cake!

So, without any further ado let's begin with the recipe:


For the sponge cake:

1. All purpose flour: 1 cup
2. Unsalted butter: 1 cup 
3. Sugar: 1 cup
4. Baking Powder: 1 tbsp
5. Vanilla Extract: 1 tbsp
6. Milk: 1/4 cup
7. Salt: 1 tsp
8. Eggs: 4

For Buttercream Icing:

1. Vegetable shortening: 1/2 cup
2. Butter: 1/2 cup
3. Powdered Sugar: 4 cups
4. Vanilla Extract: 1 tbsp
5. Milk: 2 tbsp

For Strawberry Mousse:

Check out my recipe of Mango Mousse ( I just replaced mango puree with the stawberry puree.


For making Buttercream Icing:

1.In a bowl beat vegetable shortening and butter with electric mixer until light and fluffy.

2. Add vanilla extract.

3. Gradually add powdered sugar one cup at a time. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl to combine everything. 

4. If the icing appears to be dry add milk. Beat until the icing appears fluffy and glossy.

For making the sponge cake:

1. The first thing to keep in mind while make a sponge cake is that all your ingredients should be at room temperature. So bring all the ingedients to room temperature.

2. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

3. Grease a 9 inch round pan with butter and line it with a parchment paper.

4. Sift together all purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Keep it aside.

5. Take unsalted butter and powdered sugar in a bowl and beat well with your hand mixer on medium speed until it becomes creamy.

6. Crack all the eggs in a large bowl and beat them until it becomes light and fluffy. It will take 8-10 mins on medium speed. Add vanilla extract and again beat the mixture for a minute.

7. Add flour mixture to the butter-sugar mixture and mix with the help of a spatula.

8. Gently add the beaten eggs to the flour-butter-sugar mixture and combine everything by using cut and fold process.

9. Add milk and mix well by using the same cut and fold process.

10. Pour this batter into the round pan lined with parchment paper and put it into the oven for 25-30 mins.

11. To test whether your cake is done or not, take a toothpick and insert it into the center. If it's clean your cake is done otherwise bake it for a minute or two.

12. Take out the cake from the oven and let it cool down for 10 mins.

13. Meanwhile prepare your strawberry mousse 

14. When the cake is completely cooled cut it into two halves. Add a generous layer of strawberry mousse on one half and put the other half on top of it. 

15. Put the cake in the refrigerator for the mousse to set. It will take around 3-4 hours. Once done do icing as per your choice.

16. Enjoy your Strawberry Mousse Cake.
