Hi there,

I once had a delicious chocolate cake with a strawberry filling that was very light, like a mousse. Could you please tell me how to make something like that? Thanks

How Much Water:
by: Krista

Pertaining to the question about how much water, I found this:

How much gelatin should you use for stabilized whipped cream?:

For 1 cup of cream: use 1/2 teaspoon gelatin soaked in 1 tablespoon cold water.

For 2 cups of cream: use 1 teaspoon gelatin soaked in 2 tablespoons cold water.

For 6 cups of cream: use 1 tablespoon soaked in 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoon cold water.

Awesome, thank you!
Any recipes for a whipped cream frosting to go with it? (I find the buttercream frostings too sweet and heavy)

Srawberry Mousse
by: Michelle (admin)

Try this strawberry mousse filling idea:

1 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup finely diced strawberries
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoons vanilla

Combine gelatin and water. Let stand until thick. Then place over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin dissolves, about 3 minutes.

Whip together the cream, powdered sugar, vanilla and strawberries, just until mixture is slightly thickened.

While beating slowly, gradually add gelatin to whipped cream mixture. Whip at high speed until stiff.

Cakes filled or frosted with whipped cream should always be refrigerated.
