Mango delight

This cake was created specially for my mum birthday on 22 march. Hopefully, she was happy that day. I did a Oreo base, mango cheese and mango mousse with mango puree topping. Yummy! The combination was not too rich and it taste like mango ice-cream. Next time will add some mango cube into the mousse and it will be even more yummy!!!
