The June Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Jasmine of Confessions of a Cardamom Addict and Annemarie of Ambrosia and Nectar. They chose a Traditional (UK) Bakewell Tart... er... pudding that was inspired by a rich baking history dating back to the 1800's in England.

This month's challenge is brought to us by Karen of Bake My Day and Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte aka Kochtopf. They have chosen Tuiles from The Chocolate Book by Angélique Schmeink and Nougatine and Chocolate Tuiles from Michel Roux.
Something light to star the year! Can't say that i didn't enjoy making it but didin't really enjoed the finished product.

We had to par with something light too light mousse... so i made a Cosmopolitan mousse, with condensed milk, heavy cream, cramberry juice, vodca, orange liquor and lemon juice. It tasted fantastic!!!
