There’s a lot more to cake decorating than just frosting!
The French have long elevated the decoration of their exquisite pastries to a fine art. Join talented baker Justine Lam for a fast-track introduction to tricks and techniques that will help you create dazzling desserts. Justine will walk you through the process of creating an elegant mousse bombe, and along the way you’ll discover many of the tips and secrets to creating spectacular French patisserie.
You’ll start by learning how to make a luxuriously rich-yet-light passionfruit and mango mousse, and how to top it with beautiful, glossy dark chocolate ganache. Participants will also learn how to make delicate, almond-scented Joconde pastry for elegant results, as well as a variety of sophisticated chocolate decorating techniques.
Each participant will get their own passionfruit mousse cake to prepare, decorate, and take home (if you can resist eating it on the spot!).
Justine Lam is a self-taught pastry chef who discovered the art of French pastry while living in Paris, developing a repertoire of patisserie specialties including croissants, chocolate bread, brioche, and more.
