    Not a mousse. A very rich cream. I should've known from the lack of egg whites. The air incorporated during the whisking of the egg yolks & sugar is totally insufficient to give the end product a light texture. Great as a cake topping or filling as suggested but a misleading title. - 26 Sep 2016
