Mango mousse cake

My close friend Mary from Miri visited us this week. She is an expert in cake caking. We saw some cheap Bananas and Mangos on sale in the local oriental shop. We decided to make one banana lemon cake and one Mango mousse cake. The banana lemon was eaten up even before I could take a picture of it; simply delicious.
Below is the mango cake just taken out from the fridge.
