I love poinsettias. I love chocolate ripples cakes. I love peppermint. All three of which are inherently Christmas for me. They just had to feature somewhere in this series.
Cake is a peppermint choc ripple cake, covered in chocolate mousse and wrapped in a peppermint joconde imprime. Once this sets, it's all topped with dark chocolate ganache and poinsettia leaves made from coloured white chocolate.
Moar jocondes: [ETA]
Thank you to the gorgeous ^maytel
for thinking these were great enough to feature as a DD. It was quite the lovely Christmas present to wake up to!
