Finally, keep the mousses in the fridge until use.

Remove the baskets from the oven, remove them from the molds, let them cool perfectly. Stuff the various shells with the different mousses.

for the others I used the Wilton 1A smooth and wide nozzle and decorated the pesto mousse with cherry tomatoes.

Once ready, you can keep them in the fridge until ready to serve!
