Materials

Shortbread Cookie Cake Base for Entremet

  • 3/4 lb butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar granulated
  • 2 3/4 cups flour all-purpose
  • 1/4 tsp salt

White Chocolate Ganache Filling for Entremet

  • 140 g white chocolate melting wafers
  • 80 ml heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp butter unsalted

Raspberry Mousse for Entremet Recipe

  • 12 oz raspberries frozen
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup sugar granulated
  • 2 1/4 tsp gelatin 1 package
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Chocolate Mirror Glaze for Entremet

  • 38 ml water
  • 4 tsp gelatin
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 280 ml sugar granulated or fine

Instructions

Chocolate Mirror Glaze for Entremet

  • Place 38 ml water and gelatin together in a small bowl to bloom gelatin. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Using a whisk, mix together cocoa powder and 2/3 cup of water in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Make sure all of the clumps are removed, and it should become the consistency of paste.
  • Add a couple of tablespoons of the heavy cream to mix into the cocoa powder. Whisk until it has combined.
  • Add the rest of the heavy cream and mix with a wooden spoon. You will not need your whisk anymore, as this will create bubbles, which can ruin the chocolate mirror glaze.
  • Bring the mixture until it starts simmering. Remove the mixture from the heat source right before it starts boiling.
  • Add the gelatin and mix together.
  • Place a fine mesh sieve over a small heat proof bowl. You'll want the sieve as close to the bottom of the bowl as possible, this will prevent bubbles from forming.
  • Pour the mirror glaze into the sieve. Let the mixture fall through on its own. It will take awhile to fall through (20-30 minutes).
  • As soon as the glaze is through the sieve, put a layer of plastic wrap touching the glaze to cover it. This will prevent the glaze from forming a skin on it.
  • Cool the chocolate mirror glaze until it reaches room temperature. You can place it in the fridge until you're ready to use it.

White Chocolate Ganache Filling for Entremet

  • Place chocolate in a heat proof bowl.
  • Warm the heavy cream in a small saucepan over low-medium heat. As soon as it starts simmering, pour the heavy cream over the white chocolate.
  • Let the cream and chocolate sit for 5 minutes. Then mix with a whisk until it's smooth.
  • Add butter and let it melt into the mixture. Mix with a whisk until it's fully combined and smooth. Cool the white chocolate ganache to room temperature, then place it in the fridge until you're ready to use it.

  • Place a sieve over a medium heat proof bowl. Strain the raspberry mixture through the sieve to remove the seeds. Using the back of a spoon, push the raspberry juice through the sieve as much as you can. It's quite time consuming, and you will throw out a lot of the raspberry mixture.
  • Cool the raspberry mixture to room temperature.

  • Pour whipping cream into a metal bowl for your stand mixer. Fit your stand mixer with the whisk attachment.
  • Whip the cream until stiff peaks form (5-7 minutes).
  • Fold the raspberry mixture into the whipping cream. Chill the raspberry mousse for 4 hours or until it's sturdy enough to use for your entremet cake.

Shortbread Cookie Cake Base for Entremet

  • In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar.
  • Slowly add flour and salt and cream together.
  • Press your cookie base into a 9" springform pan. Try to make it as even as possible. If you're making entremet dome cakes, press the cookie base into a 9"x13" pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 16-20 minutes at 350 degrees F.

How to assemble Entremet Cake Recipe with Mirror Glaze

  • With your cookie base in your 9" springform pan all cooled, add your white chocolate ganache layer overtop. Spread it evenly, leaving about 1 cm of margin of cookie on the outside.
  • Add raspberry mousse on top of the white chocolate ganache. Spread it evenly, and make sure the top looks nice and flat.
  • Freeze the Entremet cake overnight or 8-12 hours.
  • Remove the chocolate mirror glaze from the fridge and let it come to room temperature.
  • If the glaze looks lumpy or has bubbles in it, strain the mirror glaze again before using.
  • Remove the outer ring from the springform pan.
  • Place the cake on a wire rack over a plate to catch any drippings.
  • You will have enough mirror glaze for 2 cakes. Freeze the rest of your mirror glaze to use at a later date. Pour the mirror glaze over the cake. Use a spoon if you need to fill any spots that do not have mirror glaze on them.
  • Sprinkle gold dust if desired and garnish the cake with a chocolate decoration or mint leaf if desired.
  • Serve immediately. Freeze the entremet cake if you're not serving it right away. Let it thaw at room temperature for about 15 minutes before cutting into it. The entremet cake is good for up to 1 month in the freezer.

  • You will have enough for 8 half sphere entremet dome cakes. Reuse your half sphere molds as needed.

  • Using a melon baller, spoon 1 ball of white chocolate ganache into the center of the raspberry mousse filled silicone mold.
