Valentine's Surprise - Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #26
I could not resist, cause a few days ago I did the same as Manu, so my entry was deleted. Now I did something different so I hope it will be not disqualified. I'm a very big Manu fan. Nobody else like Manu. Hope you will like it.

Thank you so much Petra! So many nice words for me!

As you know I was inspired by Adi Klingshofer Home Bakery’s Cream Tarts, which have became very trendy at the moment. I love the “real” Cream Tarts, but I didn’t like the use of real flowers, although it is a great addition and what really characterizes them. Hence the idea of royal icing roses that lead to the whole project to develop the tart into a mini “cookie and royal icing” version and into something that last longer, that can be easily packed and moved.

I am glad to have inspired you and that you went one step further and added versatility to your cookies. I see that the “filling” of your tart is not made by royal icing piped on the cookies, but that it is made by meringues. The decorations are made of fondant and cookies and they are not glued. All of this gives to the initial project of the tart the versatility to be transformed into a box filled with meringues and decorations and the chance to decide what to eat (cookies, meringues  or deco)!

 

This is a really pretty various of those cream cakes that are all the rage right now, and the Manu inspiration is definitely apparent. I think the use of the meringues is a terrific idea, as is the decision to use chocolate cookies to create the contrast between cookies and filling without adding any coloring gels.  I am curious to know whether that is a sugar orchid - it's beautiful!

Thank you very much, love also the contrast between chocolate cookies and light cream ivoire meringues, the orchid is handmade by me, my teacher Aggeliki Manta.
