I used homemade lemon curd for my mousse, but store bought will work as well. If you haven’t made your own before, it’s so much easier than you think! The lemon curd gives the mousse a ton of flavor, and a beautiful bright yellow color. If your lemons aren’t particularly yellow, you can add a drop or two of yellow food coloring to bump up the color a little bit, but it’s totally optional. You could definitely serve these mousse cups with a little extra whipped cream on top, but they are pretty delicious as is!
