Un rêve d’été – Mousse au fromage blanc, compotée de fruits rouges sur biscuit dacquois aux amandes

[A summer dream – Fromage blanc mousse, summer berries jelly on an almond dacquois] I’m – almost, if you don’t count the past two weeks that seemed to be lived on a post-holiday cloud – just back from Corsica. The few days I spent there definitely set my mood for summer with a light sundrenched […]

Pâtisserie Lac, part four – She who let the summer enter the pâtisserie

I wish I’d come here today to tell you about how super excited I felt when I found out about Chris‘ pick for July’s daring bakers challenge. But things happened to be a little different.

It’s not that I didn’t like it. It’s just, that, well, there is so much more than buttercream-layered-cakes out there. Hence, this challenge initially felt a little frustrating […]
