Mango Mousse Chocolate ‘Gingerbread’ House Cake

It’s finally Christmas!

I’d like to wish everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS! Stuff yourselves silly with food, wrap your selves in tinsel, belt out as many Christmas carols as you can possibly think of…… and have a great time 😉

Can you sense my excitement??

To celebrate, I finally made a Christmas-themed gingerbread house cake!! The design was intended to be a little more elaborate, but I’ve been extremely busy over the past week and have only managed to just finish the cake so this’ll have to do….

The ‘gingerbread’ house and trees are actually made up of chocolate cookies, stuck together with white chocolate (I don’t like spiced cookies), but the highlight of this creation was definitely the mango mousse- one of the best mango mousse recipes I’ve tried (though I’ve only tried three).

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to share the recipe with you yet, as I am now on holidays and I didn’t manage to write down the recipe before I left. I probably won’t be able to do a proper post for another month or so either, as I’ll be a little busy holiday-ing, so have a great Christmas and New Year! 🙂

See you all again next year!

    Wow, ending the year with a bang. 🙂
    Great choice not to bake gingerbread but chocolate biscuits – not only can I imagine them tasting better with the mousse but I am also not that much of a fan of gingerbread. 😛

    Happy Holidays and New Year!
