Lesson #13: Tresor aux vanille et fraises de bois

7 Oct

The first of two ‘domed’ cakes – the wild strawberry treasure was a hit back at the apartment…AK’s Grandpa ate two pieces in one sitting, unheard of!!!  The gateau consisted of a wild strawberry mousse hidden under a vanilla chiboust cream (my new nemesis) with a base of almond dacquoise.

We again used the blow torch for the top, always a fun toy except when you get too close to the paper towel sitting beside your cake.  Whoops!

The countdown is on…hard to believe there are only 7 more lessons to go.  Feeling a bit sad just thinking about it.  Until tomorrow…
