Daring Bakers Tuiles-y Fun

Look at Allrecipes.com I have a Photo of the Day there.
On the front page is my cake.


This month's Daring Baker'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. Please look at Karen's blog to see what a stunner this challenge really was and for the recipe.


I feel sort of bad. I had huge plans for this challenge; for Inauguration Day I was going to make Obama head cookies. Then I got sick, and the plans fell by the wayside. So I ended up making stupid spirals. I really did try to do my best. It was tough!
I had mostly failures.

We were supposed to incorporate fruit in some way. Luck would have it I had fresh strawberries in the fridge. My favorite way to eat strawberries is in cream.
Sugared
Then Crushed

Then Creamed.

Oh my, I am soo sorry to hear you got ill. I was very much looking forward to your tribute to Obama. I too thought of that but chose another path after reading you were on the same tact. Well, either way, your spirals look wonderful and I very much hope you are feeling better!!! Great Job!!!!
