The vivid colour and tangy taste of oranges dominates this quick mousse. But, what makes this recipe a real topper is the way the vibrant orange sauce contrasts and complements the pleasant white chocolate and soothing whipped cream. Orange squash is better suited for this recipe than fresh orange juice, as it totally voids the risk of bitterness. As a variant, the orange sauce can also be used over vanilla ice-cream.

I have tried this recipe for the first time. i have made this for 15 ppl. Instead of 5 cup I have put only 4 cup of whipped cream my mousse didn''t set. Why??? I have followed instructions step by step. I don''t know the real reason of not setting.

   As the Whipped cream was less it might have not set and make sure the whipped cream is also well whipped....
