1)You can melt some chocolate, and brush inside the sweet pastry before placing egg custard inside and bring to bake.Reason is  to reduce the sogginess of the sweet pastry from the egg custard.

2)The french sponge biscuit can be eliminated from this recipe(optional) and the taste still remain as good because I have some left over.

3)This mousse is very delicate and easily slip through your throat.The melting point of the mousse is so high due to fact of no addition of gelatine.Please enjoy fresh in the first 1-2 days.

4)Due to the fact of the melting point of mousse is high,I just cannot risk to decorate more plus taking nice shots  of pictures,the mousse just cannot wait for me to taste it..^_^


Happy trying ^_^
