Summer Mango Mousse Cake

This cake was designed specially for Linli, who wrote to me to ask if I could help make a cake that was suitable for her 21st birthday party, with a summer yellow theme!

What was amazing about this girl, was that she knew exactly what she wanted. She emailed me a picture of a gorgeous cake littered with colourful flowers on top, saying that it was her inspiration. My job was fairly simple; all I had to do was to recreate the look. (:

So, in line with the summer yellow theme, we decided on a mango mousse cake. My dear friend Zizie, a talented home-based florist (check out Ministry of Floral Affairs!), kindly sourced for a variety of yellow flowers to help decorate the cake - there were sunflowers, lilies, gerberas, chrysanthemums and the like, of all shades of yellow. And with almost negligible floral arrangement skills, I did my best in decorating the cake.

Happy 21st Linli! (:
