TwD- Floating Islands



According to Dorie, this desert is a French classic
.. and because of its great taste I must say it will 
become a classic here at home too. The dessert is 
composed of meringue puffs and a cream called 
Créme Anglaise

This recipe was chosen by Shari of Whisk: a food blog
Thank you Shari for helping me discover this great dessert. 

I thought making this recipe was fairly easy. The only 
thing that kinda drove me mad was making those little 
islands. I just couldn't get them to look "pretty". I just 
gave up and decided that the island on the recipe book 
didn't look that perfect either and felt just a tad better 
about mine. I absolutely loved the Créme Anglaise.. it 
has a great taste and I was even happier that this recipe 
called for no chocolate at all. Again.. I apologize if I offend 
any chocolate lovers. I just wanted something with out 
chocolate :)  

The whole recipe is super easy to make.. it just takes a 
little patience which I'm not really known to have, but 
if I could do it so can you.  I greatly recommend anyone 
to try this recipe out because I know you'll love it too!

The red drizzle is pretty, especially with V-day on the way.

(I'm just a sweet-aholic and will eat ANY sweet dessert, so I wish there was something I DIDN'T like!)

Glad you enjoyed it! Your islands look all dressed up for Valentine's Day. :)

Glad you liked them. They aren't a keeper for me, but it was a new experience. They look great with the red 'stuff'.

What is the pink syrup? I looks cool and valentinesdayish (is that a word??!).

Ivette said...

I was pretty much in a rush when I made it so I decided to add some strawberry syrup instead.. at the time I didn't think about it but yes, it does go with the whole Valentine's theme :)
