We had guests tonight, so I had to make something and it had to be quick. Poached pears in sour cherry/condensed milk sauces with spun sugar, anyone?

Well, I gave in and made a quick and simple dessert, since he apologized. Didn't have time for fancy decoration, and this is a no bake thing. Hazelnut-mandarine base (no bake), apricot marmalade, apple-pear-ginger jelly, green tea+orange tuile, decorated with sugar dragonfly:




And this is simple, takes about 15 min. for the decoration Smiley Requires some specialized tools, but just plain sugar or caramel decorations are the quickest since there is no need for drying time and it sets faster than the chocolate Smiley

And some left over jelly with sugar butterfly:

alek0, if this is not fancy, I'd like to know what you do define as fancy!  The dragonfly is especially exquisite.
