French Themed Cakes & Desserts

It was Bastille Day on the 14th of July and for the first time at work it was decided that we would create some French desserts to mark the day.  There were definitely a wide range of French desserts to choose from, and as much as I wanted to do many many more, we decided on a few that would be fast, easy and I guess at the end of the day, that sells.

Nonetheless, these are a few of what I did...and perhaps next year, there will be more elaborate ones.

 Rustic looking Eclairs. Filled with chocolate cream and topped with chocolate ganache

 White chocolate mousse, topped with raspberry coulis.

 Chocolate cupcakes topped with butter cream and orange cupcakes topped with chocolate buttercream. The "French" theme fondant cut outs were hand drawn with edible ink.

 Crepes with orange syrup.

 Poached pears and chocolate ganache tarts.

 Tart a Tartin.

Salted caramel macaroons
