Halloween Entremet 1


Halloween EntremetHalloween marks the beginning of the busy pastry schedule that runs through Mother’s Day.  In order to keep our sanity, it is best to have fun with it and embrace this holiday in all of its costumed glory.  There are few things more magical than a display case filled with classic seasonal treats and elaborate showpieces.  Today I offer a Halloween entremet featuring a crunchy caramel popcorn layer, candy corn mousse, salted popcorn sponge cake, and a delicious white chocolate and orange glaze.    Happy Haunting!
