hi everyone, for my baking practical finals i need to make a plated dessert but i'm not sure what to do can someone help me? I was thinking to do maybe a chocolate cake with a ganache or something.............any suggestions
Make single serving size gateau St Honore. It's the classic show me what you can do dessert.
A round docked base of pate feuilletee, pipe a circle of pate a choux on the edge of the base with a round tip. Bake that base off.
When cool, fill with creme chiboust. Decorate top with piped creme chantilly, and top with a little cream puff dipped in caramelized sugar.
Or you can do a little mousse type cake. Use a round mold/biscuit cutter. Put a little layer of sponge cake on the bottem, and then a strip of ribbon sponge around the edge. Fill with a mousse or bavarois. Glaze with an appropriate flavor on top. Decorate with appropriate garnishes.
