Who wants some coffee with a dash of Irish Cream liqueur? Oh…there you go. I already sense some hands going up. But this coffee won’t be hot and drinkable. No, I’ve got something better for you. Nice Baileys mousse mini cakes in a cute chocolatey cookie bowl. Don’t they look like a nice flower?
These flower-like sweet treats actually emerged out of a necessity. I’ve got the opportunity to bake lots of sweet finger food for the wedding of my friends. They wanted something with whipped cream, alcohol and coffee. Preferably everything in just one cake. What can I say? Challenge excepted. I had lots of ideas for this but I neither had special dessert forms nor was the cream I tried first perfect in its consistency. So, I needed small bowls. And I wanted them to be edible. And what is more edible than nice little cookie bowls?!
That was some fidgeting. ‘Cause I’ve set my mind on creating cute flower-like cookie cups. Well the idea isn’t that bad if you have the appropriate cookie cutters, which I hadn’t. Instead I created my own stencil.
That’s it for now. The Baileys mousse mini cakes don’t want to scare you off. There is just one thing I want to mention. I’ve got the original recipe for the baileys mousse from Lemon Tree Dwelling but I had to change it a little bit. Instead of cocoa powder, I wanted some coffee flavour in it:
Oh, if those cookie cups are to much fiddeling for you, you can use a round cookie cutter or just don’t make them. The Baileys mousse is even more delicious right out of the bowl it was mixed in.
With this in mind,
Bottoms up for those Baileys mousse mini cakes!
