That's a very interesting article Smiley

BF has managed to finish everything already, so I had to make something quick, lemon sponge with green tea tuile, orange and ginger marmalade, fresh fruit (mango, pineapple, bananas) and whipped cream with lemon.

Hazlenut cake (linzer base, orange-dark chocolate ganache, hazelnut sponge, vanilla mousse, chocolate mirror glaze, caramel decorations):



I just love how the glaze turned out Smiley And since I was doing spun sugar for the caramel decorations, I just spun some more, I love working with sugar:

Alek, you could decorate a Christmas tree with that spun sugar. Hey! maybe for Christmas, if you celebrate it, you can actually make a tree cake and sugar decorations.

He has already eaten it, argh. So I made a quick tart, shell is hazlenut&mandarine, orange&mandarine marmalade, chestnut filling, glazed with mandarine&apricot jam (I just love shiny glazes) and decorated with caramel and spun sugar:

Just the tart:

Whole thing:

Ahhh, lovely. How long does it take you, on average, to make these creations, Alek?

A tart like this takes somewhere between one and a half and two hours from start to finish, including time for the dough to warm up to room temperature and time needed for the shell to cool down. I made the dough day before (about 15 mins. work), since it needs to sit in the fridge for at least an hour and then to warm up before making the tart shell. Otherwise I wouldn't have time. I came home from work around 8:45 pm, fed the kitties, had some dinner, and then took the dough out of the fridge to warm up at sometimes past 9 pm, and after it warmed up started making the tart. Everything was finished around 11 pm.
