Preparation

  1. Mix all the base ingredients thoroughly, but the raspberries.
  2. Dividing the mixture into 4, place one part into the bottom of the metal ring and spread evenly. Repeat this until you have 4 bases.
  3. Blend all mousse ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth and set aside.
  4. Arrange some raspberries at the bottom of the ring, covering the whole of the base. You can then cover with one quarter of the mousse. Repeat this with the other bases.
  5. Leave the cakes you have just done in the freezer for a few minutes, by which time it will be firm enough to remove the metal ring.
  6. You can decorate the cakes however you like. For my decoration, I mixed cacao butter, cacao powder and agave syrup and used a spoon to drizzle that mixture onto a Paraflexx sheet. I then saved it in the freezer for a few minutes until firm. I also topped the cakes with some raspberries and a dusting of cacao powder.
