Thin almond layer, topped with creamy cherry mousse, covered in chocolate and crispy caramelized almonds.
This mini cherry mousse torte is delicious, light and beautiful.
I can’t say that this recipe is quick, but it’s easy, plus, you can do the work in parts – you could bake the almond layer a day in advance and cook the cherries a day ahead, too. The next day you can finish the mousse and assemble the cakes. To additionally ease your work, you can make one big cake instead of mini cakes, it’s up to you!
Bottom line is that these cakes deserve every minute spent in the kitchen, simply because they are heaven!
Ahh this is a food I grew up with! My mom would always make this dessert on weekends and I was infatuated with the taste from a young age. You’ll probably see this menu at Thai restaurants but they often sell it for a lot of money… it is so simple to make and hardly costs a thing to make at home so I really recommend giving that a try. Sometimes people shy away from dishes and desserts that are from other parts of the world as they’re perceived as difficult and exotic… don’t be, many of them are extremely easy to make!
