Recipe |抹茶漸層慕斯蛋糕 Matcha Gradient Mousse Cake

Hi! As a matcha lover, when I first saw a Youtuber video from Amanda Tastes about how to make a matcha mousse cake, I was deeply attracted and intrigued. Her matcha mousse cake has layers of matcha with different gradient, and it looked so cute. Therefore, I decided to challenge myself to bake this amazing looking gradient matcha mousse cake. 

身為抹茶控的我, 看到Youtuber曼食慢语分享的超療癒系漸層慕斯蛋糕,
馬上被它深深吸引, 一圈一圈的漸層綠色看起來好療愈
