Updated: Jan 10
Jeju Omija Honey Jelly Mousse Cake - 4 layer mousse cake combined with Jeju Omija Honey jelly inside, glazed with a sweet and sour goodness from nature! Refreshing bakes for the warm weather.
As much as i love honey, this ingredient does make me wonder what more could i do with it. In this recipe, we worked with passionate home baker LIPS Cakes & Cookies (check out their link below) to create using Jeju Omija Honey. This refreshing mousse cake has that punch of naturally sweet and sour from the Omija (Five flavor berry), soft mousse surrounding it and finishing it off with citrus orange Omija glaze! Wooosh! doesn't it sounds wonderful?
