Reviews for Mini Raspberry Mousse Parfaits
"This was absolutely delicious! I used real whipping cream instead of the fake stuff and didn't add sugar. It was not too sweet which we all liked. I served it for dessert after our Christmas dinner and it was "just right"."
"teatreats: raspberry desserts are always the last to be eaten so glad to know this was made with another flavor!! Thanks so much!! because it sounds yummy!!"

"just absolutely wonderful"
"Very tasty,easy & fast. I have made a similiar dessert with strawberries.For this one, I place cubed cake in bowl first,divide boiled puree, pour half over cake, fold in whipped topping, chill until ready to serve. The other half I add cranberry juice rather then orange juice,place in fridge until ready.In the 4 dishes place scant of puree in bottom, place the cake mixture in, add more puree, top with dollop of whipped cream and berry, or just berry, or more puree sauce. The cake when mixed in absorbs the puree and it's not in chunks, more like mousse. Wonderful dessert in my tea room."
