Roses De Reims~
There are no roses blooming in our gardens yet..so for my Darling Baker Rose Sunday..I chose les biscuits "Roses De Reims"..I was able to find some at La Vieille Europe in Montréal..
They are the quintessential "dip me in champagne" cookie and have quite a little history to them~
I personally just love the way they look~
Fossier~ Roses De Reims..
I have since discovered that many talented bloggers make their own..but I have yet to find the perfect "Moule" to make them in..I hope to!
I opted for little Roses De Reims Charlottes.. w/ a Cassis flavored Mousse inside..
Topped with whipped cream..
I would have hoped for real roses to adorn the dessert but we are still in the apple blossom days of Spring here and I don't want to wish them away~
I hope Diane will forgive me..
Thank you Diane and Jain..fun little Rose Escapade!
I used my PVC molds..and sparingly dipped les biscuits Roses De Reims in a mixture of Cassis and a touch of water.. set them around the PVC mold and filled with my mousse..Refrigerated..unmolded and decorated.
I used a DR Oetker..yes.. light chocolate mousse and added some Cassis.I do use that mousse for lighter version desserts for just Jacques and I.I like those products.On of the rare pre- packaged things we use ..I don't even think Jacques knows...:) I only made 2..it's not a dessert that keeps well.It's for the moment..:)
