    Hello, Please have a look at this picture

    http://imageupload.org/en/file/234026/untitled.jpg.html

    It is a dessert I have been trying to get the recipe for long time. As you can there is layers. I know how to make the almond macornade and I know how to make hazelnut praline. But this cream in the middle is driving me nuts. IT is not whipping cream, I tried. it doesn't melt easily it takes time. Any ideas please? Thanks

    how can it set then??? I mean I left this dessert for a while and it doesn't really melt as in runny but it is kinda firm. When it melt it has the consistency of a cream cheese if it make sense. Pastry cream folded in whipped cream (which I tried before) didn't set at all!

    have you tried making a hazelnut buttercream? usually it's for frosting cakes but i have made rolled cakes(lemon) with a buttercream filling...the filling doesn't go anywhere and you can cut it and leave it to sit out for quite a while if need be
