White chocolate mousse: Cute and happy dessert.

 If you ask me what I really want to do, I can't answer, haha. I think that I have too many hobbies and I love them all.

One of my hobbies is drawing, not that I'm good at it, just happy to do it, that's all, so I mix both baking and drawing by drawing what I made or what I want to make ^^. 
This time, I saw a recipe, and I wanted to turn it into small and individual cake instead of large one. Because I wanted to make it to look like the one that I drew,  I use very little amount of the raspberry ganache, so if you follow my way of decorating you need only half amount of it. But I give you the full amount,  so you can use it to make large cake (for one large cake you will need 16 cm cake ring).
The white chocolate mousse in this recipe is not too rich, because it use milk as a base, I can eat whole piece and eat other dessert more, haha. 
Serve it with hot tea or coffee is good choice ^^, and have happy relaxing time!

HI,

I wanna make this dessert <3
I was just wondering about the cake flour, is it just from the supermarket, or is is something else?

Thanks!

Cake flour is wheat flour which low in protein, if you can't find it you can use 90g of plain flour mix with 10g of corn starch to equal 100g.
