Do you know Murphy’s Law? It says that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. And today is one of these days. However, instead of getting frustrated or even aggressive, I put everything aside and treat myself with a nice dessert. Okay! I might not deserve it, but sometimes you just need something comforting to survive the day. So, today I opt for my granny’s strawberry mascarpone mousse. It is supposed to look like this ice cream which imitates a plate of spaghetti with tomato sauce (I know, it is a weird, but typical German creation), and tastes like a fruity version of tiramisu (without the booze and coffee).
During my childhood, my granny used to make this strawberry mascarpone mousse for birthday parties and other big events because it was (and still is) so easily and quickly prepared. Usually she served huge bowls of it, but don’t worry, I think, half the amount will be enough for a family of four. (To be honest, even a spoonful of that mousse could be enough to induce happiness for a whole day.) That is hardly surprising with all those rich ingredients; whipped cream, quark, mascarpone and a fruity strawberry puree, so basically all those tasty ingredients which make my heart leap for joy.
And just imagine, this mousse is served within an edible chocolatey bowl. Oh my gosh! That would be my seventh heaven.
