Une Soirée Parisienne! part deux

Also, while in Paris, I got to visit E. Dehillerin, a pastry supply house that has been helping foodies get the proper equipment since 1820! You know the phrase "like a kid in a candy store?" Well, it was invented for times like this! Natalie walked in with me and looked around for a minute or two before announcing that she would be waiting outside reading a book. I think she knew I could have stayed in there forever and spent the equivalent of what the entire trip to Paris cost! I lusted and coveted to my heart's content for quite a while before going out to meet up with Natalie. She asked me where my bags were, and I commented that I wasn't sure I could justify spending much in there. And then I realized that it would be positively sinful to leave Paris without a little something from there. I ended up with 2 sets of pastry molds - one of which I promptly put to good use for tonight's soirée.

So, for the dessert we used the heart molds. We layered chocolate cake and white cake with a nutella mousse, then covered the whole thing with ganache. We plated it up with a bit of hazelnut and plaid chocolate! Mmm mmm good!
