so good.. #9

In so good.. magazine #9, Guillaume Mabilleau, MOF patissier and owner of Nuances Gourmandes, cast a sweet spell on us. We are talking about two cakes for special occasions, one of them in dark chocolate and one in white, known in French as “Fééries”. The magic was to make it appear as if the mousse was at the point of overflowing whilst maintaining the elegance of a festive design.

Take a look at so good.. magazine #9 to find the twin sister of this attractive creation.
