Maple Mousse in Nutmeg Tuile Cups (Daring Bakers)Posted 28 April 2011 by Debbie
The April 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Evelyne of the blog Cheap Ethnic Eatz. Evelyne chose to challenge everyone to make a maple mousse in an edible container. Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite at http://thedaringkitchen.com!
The suggestion for the edible container for the mousse was bacon. Now, I love bacon. And, I do appreciate some sweet/salty combos, eg. sweet & sour Chinese, chocolate peanut butter cups etc. but for me, bacon dessert is taking things a bit too far. I was thinking of making something white chocolate-y for the edible cup, but I thought that would be too sweet with all the maple syrup, so I decided to make a nutmeg tuile cup.
Unfortunately, the nutmeg tuile edible cup (although delicious) was a little disastrous. I just couldn’t get it to take the shape of the cup. The mousse worked out really well, but all that maple syrup made it a bit too sweet for my taste.
