-The mango mousse was adapted from Happy Home Baking, but made little changes on it because I run out of yogurt, so i replaced it with yogurt drink.

Mango mousse filling300g fresh mango (use sweet, ripped fruits)
2 tablespoons caster sugar
140g yogurt drink or fresh milk
1 tbsp and 2tsp gelatin powder
1. Measure water in a bowl, sprinkle gelatine into water, set aside for 10mins.
2. Melt in a bowl over a pot of simmering hot water, set aside to cool.
3. Blend mangoes, sugar and yogurt until smooth.
4. Add in gelatine solution to the mixture, mix well.
To assemble the cake- trims off some sponge cake from the cup, spoon mango mousse filling to cover the cup cake. Leave to chill in the fridge for several hours or till set. Keep the cake in the fridge before serving.
My note- To bake the cup cakes first and set aside till cool to room temperature, then only start to prepare mango mousse filling.
-it is normal when sponge cake shrink a bit after baked
-trim off some cake and cover with mango mousse filling. In order not to waste, you can just mix the excess cake and balance mango mousse together, and it become a yummy mango cake pudding !! try it out.
HAPPY baKING !!
