Daring Bakers, January: Biscuit Joconde Imprime



The January 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Astheroshe of the blog accro. She chose to challenge everyone to make a Biscuit Joconde Imprime to wrap around an Entremets dessert.

My biscuit joconde imprime is just vanilla flavored, by the entrements is vanilla sponge topped with cheesecake filling and a layer of blueberries.

Notes:
I piped the colored batter directly onto the silpat. If you want, you can also trace designs through parchment paper. I made sure to use colors that would contrast really well and really pop and be different--blue and the batter's natural yellow.

The bottom of my jaconde. I baked it on the back of an upside-down sheet pan, and the batter dripped off a bit. Luckily, it was only 3 a.m. when I set the smoke detector off three times in a row . . .

The "front" of the jaconde. I drew the designs on my silpat so I could split the baked cake into three strips that I could line my cake pan with. I was going to make the entire design like the top portion, but as it got later (I started around 2:30 a.m.), I got lazier and ended up drawing the swooshes in the bottom section.

Blue is my favorite color, and cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts, so your dessert is calling to me so loudly! I just want to reach through the screen and take a piece! I love your work, and I really want to come over next time you make it! Thank you for sharing, and I will try to keep the drool to a minimum!

It looks fantastic with the blue sponge and the white filling. The blueberries on top was a great idea. But the fire alarm! I hope you gave some cake to your neighbours as a peace offering!
