  6. While the cake is baking, whip the whipping cream with icing sugar until it forms peaks and store it in the fridge.
  7. Soak the powdered gelatin in 4 tbsp of water for 5 mins
  8. Cool the cake completely, before scraping off the top and sides (the brown cover) to leave just the inner soft sponge in the spring form pan

  14. Once the mousse layer is set, bring out the cake from the fridge and pour in the remaining mango pulp and gelatin mixture (the 1/2 cup). This will be the mango glaze
  15. Refrigerate for another 30-45 mins before taking it out. Best to wait overnight.
  16. Your mango mousse cake is now ready, you can add fresh kiwis/mango pieces or chocolate shavings on top if you like!
