Strawberry Charlotte MadCakes

MadCharlotte Strawberry “Charlotte” is a celebration of French strawberries. A natural madeleine cake base with a strawberry surprise inside. A strawberry cream whipped up like those Italian ice-creams just as I remember in Rome. Crunchy sprinkles to add texture to the smooth and creaminess of the cream. A Mara des Bois strawberry known for their petite size and extra sweetness makes it a perfect decor. A Swiss meringue for that extra something.

The strawberry cream is just … perfect…. A “chantilly” in French to it’s reputation is light, airy, not sugary and all but savour. A chantilly that is made of only the best French full fat cream, Belgium-French white chocolate and strawberry puree, and therefore no need to add any sugar. I love when I create with ‘feel good’ ingredients.

Note to self: this is the first time I’ve made cakes with a whole fresh stawberry inside. Good idea in theory, not so good in practical. I’m new to the world of “cupcakes” coming from a world of French pastry, and I’m finding it not so easy. So this recipe will need modification but it definitely has potential. The strawberry whipped cream is perfect though. No changes there.

Ganache, a very sexy concept

DSC_2734

Ganache is a very sexy concpet. You name the dessert, tell me it’s got “ganache” and I’m going for THAT one! I don’t think I’m alone when I say this. Why is a ganache so sexy? I think firstly because chocolate’s involved. Chocolate that has been melted into flowing lava liquid then swirled in with silky cream and, or even a fruit puree or deep nutty praline or pistachios. A ganache seems to have all the good bits of patisserie swirled into one. It’s soft and melty in your mouth…. whooh….And it’s the word itself… G..a.. n…a..ch.. e. Super sexy!

Mad for Madeleines caramel-orange

DSC_1859

MadCharlotte is Mad for Madeleines and for this sort in particular, caramel-orange. Trop bon!!! Madeleines are made with a liquid caramel, then, while still warm out of the oven are filled with a more fudgy sort of caramel because MC is crazy for caramel! and then for a twist in flavour are lightly bathed in an orange syrup. Ooohh my Madeleine!!!!
