Angry Mousse problem!

Everytime I make mousse I end up with runny yogurt like mousse

But all the fancy french bakeries have a very light dense mouse that hold its shape like image below:




What am I doing wrong? Nothing All the illustrated cook books have the runny mousse

also recipes on the internet I found are all runny!

It would be helpful if you posted your recipe and if you changed anything in that recipe.

If all the ingredients are per recipe then it has something to do with making process it self.

Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse Recipe - Allrecipes.com

Death by Chocolate Mousse Recipe - Allrecipes.com

Je Mange la Ville Decadent & (Pretty) Easy Chocolate Mousse

and if you see the images they all end up with the fake yogurt mousse

There is nothing wrong with the recipes and probably nothing wrong with the way you are making it. There are different textures of mousse including the type you have been making and the stiffer mousse you want to make.

It will take me a little bit but I will find you a recipe that will do what you want. I believe you started another thread with the exact same picture and there were suggestions in there how to make it.

So is there a name for the stiffer mousse?

After huge search I found out 3 types of mousse

mousse# 1 (the yogurt like mousse) doesn't hold its shape



mousse# 2 (the heavy stiffy densy mousse) holds the shape + very heavy





mousse#3 (the tiramisu like mousse) holds its shape + very fluffy and light




and I'm looking for #3
