Chocolate Truffle Mango Ice Cream Cake
Happy Mother’s Day!!
I dedicate this special Mother’s day cake to my gorgeous mother and lovely mother-in-law. I have been blessed to have these 2 women in my life 🙂
This truffle Mango cake is a special recipe which I have created from the scratch to celebrate Mother’s Day.
Mother’s role is a very special role in any individual life and irreplaceable. It’s a very profound relationship one shares with their mother. She’s the one who takes the pain to bring a new soul in the world and always stays by side no matter what. I am a mother too and have tremendous respect for women.
Being mother is not an easy job, it’s messy, lot of emotions, hard work , sleepless nights sometimes but it’s totally worth it and I love my job being as a mommy. Love those cute little hands when I receive hugs from them, unconditional love, those cute admiral eyes which has all the expectations that my mommy knows the magic to solve my problem.
Saga of my truffle –
This ice cream cake is full of sweetness and love. It has different layers such as raw truffle, dark chocolate, rhubarb marmalade, mango and mango ice cream on top. Recipe for Rhubarb marmalade.
Below in recipe, will write the whole process to make all mentioned layers. It’s quite easy to make.
When I decided to make this recipe, bought all the ingredients except date fruits, it’s a basic dry fruit which I always have in the house as my kids loves to munch on it. I was sure that I have it until I begun to make the recipe. Fortunately had the whole family home due to the long weekend and unfortunately all the supermarkets were closed which means it was nice to have a long weekend due to public holiday but not nice to miss the ingredient when the supermarkets were closed 😉
We drove almost 15 KM away to find dates 😉 what really..oh yeah..where as supermarkets are 5 minutes away where I live, well that’s a blogger life , a desperation to find an ingredient 😉
The good part is I found dates and that was organic dates. Do you love dates too ? Have a breakfast recipe with dates Spiced Tangy Oats Breakfast
My skylander boy accompanied me in the kitchen as he was super excited with the sound of mango and ice cream. He kept asking me who taught you to make delicious food, am so lucky that you are my mother. See it’s a well-deserved compliment for a mommy while making a Mother’s day cake ..hehe..
