12 Days of Christmas :: 4 Poinsettia Jocondes by cakecrumbs 12 Days of Christmas :: 4 Poinsettia Jocondes by cakecrumbs
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.

[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!

Thanks! the recipients apparently didn't have many qualms about destroying them. They were eaten pretty quickly.

Thank you for that. I cannot stand artists who have no idea what their art alludes to. For art to be art it has to have meaning. I am so glad you explained what you think it means. It also reminds me of the contrast between hard and soft. Light and heavy. This is also a concept used in rock band names: Led Zeppelin, Iron Butterfly, Guns n Roses. Marble Pillow. I am glad you are thinking as well as creating. Refreshing.

xD Daw. I've usually seen puppy dog eyes go the other way round; used to get food for themselves rather than another.

It's ridiculously simple: you paint chocolate on to real leaves, let it set then remove the leaves.
