Raspberry mousse dome recipe is made using half sphere silicone molds. The center of the raspberry mousse dome cake is filled with luscious white chocolate ganache. The dome cake case is made out of a shortbread cookie.

You could also use a different cake base if you wanted. A cookie crumble cake base would also work well with raspberry mousse.

Raspberry mousse by itself is incredibly decadent and satisfying. The shortbread cookie tones down the sweetness a little, giving it a more balanced flavoring.

For garnishing your raspberry dome cake, you could add a chocolate decoration, fresh raspberries, or a mint leaf.

  • 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.

How to assemble Raspberry Mousse Dome Cake

  • You will have enough for 8 half sphere raspberry dome cakes. Reuse your half sphere molds as needed.
  • Use a spoon to heap the raspberry mousse into the silicone mold. Press it into the mold to ensure there are no crevasses that will form on the exterior of the dessert.
  • Using a melon baller, spoon 1 ball of white chocolate ganache into the center of the raspberry mousse filled silicone mold.

  • Add more raspberry mousse as needed to the outside of the ball of white chocolate ganache. You can also add raspberry mousse over the white chocolate ganache to fully encase it, if you want to.
  • Press the shortbread cookie (that you cut to size using a cookie cutter or glass) into the raspberry mousse and white chocolate ganache in the silicone mold. It's ok if it sticks out a bit from the mold.
