Kiwi 'Batik' Mousse Cake


I was actually planning to make a 'Batik' cake at the beginning but my boy said he doesn't want Milo in the cake. Well, he is the boss because it's his birthday cake anyway! =o) He requested for a cheese cake or mousse cake for his birthday. So, as he wishes! Here's what I've came out with! .......

Ingredients for Kiwi Mousse :

(A)
350gm fresh kiwi fruit, mashed
120gm sugar
1 tspn kiwi paste/extract (or 2 drops of green colouring)

(B)
2 tbsp gelatine
100gm water

(C)
500ml whipping cream

*1 packet Marie biscuit for layering

Method :
- combine ingredients (B) and set aside.
- combine ingredients (A) and simmer over low heat untill sugar dissolved.
- add mixture (B) into kiwi mixture and stir untill gelatine totally dissolved.
- leave the kiwi mixture aside for cooling.
- stir in the kiwi mixture bit by bit to the whipped cream untill well mixed.
- divide kiwi mousse cream into 5 portion.
- lined parchment paper to a 9" square tray.
- place in the Marie biscuit to the tray, then cover it with one portion of cream mixture.
- repeat the process untill everything is completed
- then chilled overnight or untill the mousse is set.
- finally, decorate the cake as desired.
* do not add in extra kiwi fruits because kiwi contains more liquid than berries. (300gm to 350gm should be just nice)


I can actually managed to put 5 layers in it but I only put 4!

Do you think it looks too green? I used white chocolate & green pandan chocolate bar for this.

My boy loves every bit of it. Kiwi has such refreshing flavour and it really does smell terrific. I have to say everyone loves it. I definitely will make this again soon. ^_^ So, enjoy!

I don't think it looks too green =D I love the colour of the cake! This cake looks so yummy! I love kiwi fruit- I've never made kiwi mousse though. Sounds delicious! And I didn't know you could get pandan chocolate bars =O I don't think we can get them here though =[

Happy Birthday to your boy! With mommy so good in baking, he can actually ask for any cake under the sun :D If I were your son, I want to celebrate my birthday everyday!.... LOL. Just what an awesome birthday cake! I ate kiwi cake when I was back in Malaysia. It was really delicious. But yours looks much nicer so I can imagine how delicious it was. I wish I could have a slice! Have to be good friend to your son...haha.

Lyndsey said...

Kristy, now that is what is really important...that the birthday boy loves it!! Then everyone else! Sounds like a lovely, yummy success! I need to get myself over to your house in a couple weeks for my birthday cake. I usually don't eat cake much and don't get one for my birthday, but then I've never had one of your creations! What a treat that would be!!! Lucky kids!

elra said...

Where did you buy that pandan chocolate bar from?

wendyywy @ Table for 2..... or more said...

What a good improvisation.

Does the biscuits stay crunchy or it softened and tasted like cake?

I've been itching to make kiwi cake for a long time.. maybe I should someday not too far away.

Anncoo said...

Happy Birthday for your boy, Kristy.
Your kiwi cheesecake looks good and high. Very creative to add biscuits in the cake :)

Drick said...

Penny : Thanks, dear!

Smallkucing : Yeap, National Day is coming soon huh!

Claudia : Thank you very much. Glad that you like it.

Alison : Errr.... maybe through fax machine or printer! haha....

Claire : Don't let your salivate drip onto the laptop huh! hehe....

Jess : Emm... interesting! Will hop over to check on that cake after this. Thanks alot for sharing.

Von : Great to hear that you like kiwi flavour cake too. You can easily get those chocolate bars at the bakery specialty shops. I'm not sure if you could find this over at your place.

MaryMoh : Haha.... I think you still miss home very much! No worries, wait till the plane tickets got promotion then come back again.

Lyndz : Oh thank you so much for your kind words. They're actually getting bored of having the same old sponge cake. So, my kids very much looking forward to something new on their birthday but without the sponge. So, here it is!

Elra : Thank you, kak Elra!

HH : Oh such a compliment! I'm honoured and thank you very much. That's very kind of you, darling.

Jeannie : Thank you and glad you like it too.

Spoon : Thanks alot!

Joycee : Oh, nice to see you here, Joy! Glad you like the cake too.

Elin : Yeah, he was! He adored the cake very much and has taken 3 slices straight! haha.... I bought the chocolate bars from Mydin supermarket or you can get them from the bakery specialty shops as well. There're also other flavours of chocolate bar available, such as strawberry, orange, lemon etc.

Wendy : The biscuits stay a little crunchy & soft at the same time due to less moisture in the cream. I think it's pretty cool!

Anncoo : Thank you and glad that you like it too.

Drick : Now, you did! And I'm going to send you a big slice of it. haha....

Fimere : Merci, sweetie! Hope I could share this with you and enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee.

Thank you very much everyone for visiting and spending your time here with me. It is such a great pleasure for having you here. Hope you're all having a wonderful day!

Cheers, kristy
