Dreamin’ of a Dessert Xmas (Dessert #2 & #3)

Compared to my first Dreamy Dessert’s presentation factor, these two are remarkably understated. But don’t let that fool you.

Imagine, if you will, a light white sponge cake layered with strawberries and topped with white chocolate shavings. That’s exactly what Strawberry Bagetelle is. And while light desserts are normally ideal during the Spring and Summer months, this can be enjoyed any time of year. It’s red and white so the colors match perfectly with the current holiday season.

The Spring Basket Cup is an edible chocolate cup filled with a rich chocolate mousse. And as if that wasn’t enough, raspberries, blackberries and a piece of white chocolate garnish this “basket”.

Both desserts are exceptionally good. They’re something I’ve dreamed about, and you will too. Get them from The French Gourmet in Pacific Beach (San Diego).
