Frozen Gianduja Petit Four

Another tasty tidbit coming your way...

Frozen Gianduja Petit Fours:
Frozen hazelnut and milk chocolate mousse sandwiched between a dark chocolate crumb crust and a gooey milk chocolate ganache. All topped with flakes of Maldon sea-salt. Pretty tempting, eh?

Exotic Shortbreads

We're doing way too much baking and chocolate-work around here trying to decide on the perfect offerings for the upcoming cafe. Luckily, Ben and I are holding each other to strict portion-control! Otherwise, we wouldn't be able to fit through the door when it finally opens in October!

Here is the first of what will hopefully be a series of visually tantalizing teasers. Unfortunately, you won't be able to indulge for another month and a half. I'm confident that you'll be able to hold it together until then...

Exotic Spiced Shortbreads:
Three different butter shortbreads here: One with dried lavender blossoms, another with aniseed, and a third chocolate with candied cocoa nibs.
