Lemon Shaped Mousse Recipe



Lemon Shaped Mousse Recipe - lemon & white chocolate mousse shaped in a gorgeous lemon shell, perfect and delicious for a summer party! by BirdsParty.com @birdsparty #lemonmousse #lemon #dessert #recipe #lemonparty #citruspartyideas #summerdessert #nobakedessert #lemonshapedmousse

If you follow the blog, you probably have noticed the lemon themed posts lately, hence today's lemon shaped mousse.

I made this mousse a few weeks ago in view of shooting it for the lemon party I shared last week. But this is one of those desserts that deserves its own post!

This lemon and white chocolate mousse is so delicious, light and refreshing, not to mention super pretty due to its charming lemon shape. Therefore, I'm naming it "best dessert of the summer"! 😊

Lemon Shaped Mousse Recipe

The lemon shape of this mousse is simply achieved by using a silicone mold.


The dessert itself is my own take inspired by a French chef called Cédric Grolet, who I believe, was the first to make this lemon-shaped dessert famous.

It's also a super easy summer dessert to make, and you only need a handful of ingredients, which you probably already have at home.

For its vibrant color I used a food coloring spray, which was so easy and mega fun to work with!

You can purchase both the lemon mold and the spray online at Amazon for instance, so it's totally a do-able recipe.

For this lemon and white chocolate mousse, I used a lemon curd insert for a tangy and sweet surprise when you cut open the lemon. 

For the lemon curd I had some at some leftover from the lemon layer cake I shared a few weeks ago, but you could totally used store-bought lemon curd too.
