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.
