5.Spoon mousse into pan holes and refrigerate overnight.
6.Serve mousse cakes with orange syrup. To make orange syrup stir juice and sugar in small saucepan, over heat, without boiling, until sugar dissolves. Add rind and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until thickened slightly. Cool.
