For the second day, here is one more easy breezy dessert you can put together in around fifteen minutes. I am not going for any traditional recipes this week, but am just giving you some good ideas for any party you will be doing for easter or some other occasion. Ever since I bought a pack of dried rose petals from Delhi, I have been using it to top my desserts. My daughter loves it and being the only one who is trying out the desserts, I am quite happy to add the rose petals on them. They look so good and tastes great too.

Vegetarian version of the white chocolate mirror glaze has been in my to do list for long. I have even tried it so many times and failed it. So I just stopped trying. But my readers and viewers haven’t stopped asking me about it. I used to reply that I will do, but didn’t get the needed push to do it. When I went to Delhi, I met with one of Vaishali’s nieces who wanted a recipe for white chocolate glaze so that she can make it for her kid’s first birthday. I promised her that I will post a video immediately.
When I started making cakes for my You Tube channel regularly, I have been receiving suggestions for recipes on the channel. There was one recipe I got too many requests and that is leopard print on mirror glaze. This glaze looks beautiful, looks so intricate and looks like a tough one to make. When I decided to make one, I too thought that it will be very hard to make. I saw so many videos of French Chefs making this cake, but I was not at all confident. But still I tried and was so happy with the result. And I also found that it is too easy. There are so many designs you can obtain with this technique. I just made a horizontal swipe on top of the cake. You can also have the cake on a turner and swipe it along the circumference of the cake for a different result. And there are so many colour combinations. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. If you try, do not forget to share your cake photo with me. I will be very happy. If you want I can even add it to this post.
Last month I made a batch of cream cheese with my usual home made cream cheese recipe ( click on link to read the post). I was planning on a cheese cake with it and I saw a chocolate cheese cake online. Sorry, I forgot where I saw it as it was months back, but I had the proportions noted down. The cheesecake uses white chocolate for the filling and some dark chocolate for decorating the top. As plain dark chocolate is used, it becomes crunchy after chilling which makes it difficult to slice the cheesecake. If I make it next time, I will add dark chocolate ganache instead of chocolate. If you are making this note this point. If you want it soft, go for ganache and if you love crackling chocolate then follow the recipe given.
Mousse cake has been in my to do list for long, but I kept postponing as I was so much afraid of failure. I have done a lots of experiments in these five and a half years of blogging, but now, I am little hesitant. But still I wanted to make it and one fine day set on the task. This cake has three layers. The bottom most is an egg free oil based chocolate cake. The second layer is a egg free gelatin free white chocolate mousse and the third layer is egg free gelatin free dark chocolate mousse. The whole cake is frosted with whipped cream and then covered in a dark chocolate mirror glaze. A chocolate flower is added to add to the beauty of the cake. Can you see my reflection on the cake?
