Cut the cake horizontally and sprinkle with syrup , pour 1/3 of the mango mousse over over one slice ,spread it evenly then put another slice on top of it and pour the remain mouse on the cake and spread it evenly with a knife gently.And refridgerate it for 2 hrs
After 2 hrs take the cake out ,by the time it will set nicely ,now pour the prepared mango jelly over it and spread it gently over the cake and refridgerate it for 1 hr to set.
