    my husband and I prepared it. It is so simple to make. Tastes beautiful. highly recommanded!  -  07 Apr 2012


    The gelatine as it was leaf did not dissolve and as a result the mousse was still runny after hours in the fridge with lumps of gelatine in it. I suggest you should specify that powdered gelatine should be used...a total waste of money and time for me!!!!!!!  -  18 Feb 2018


    Really lovely - I only had 250 ml cream but it worked out just fine. Will be making this again  -  05 Sep 2015
