I’m way too stuffed from dinner now, but will probably attack this in the morning. It looks like a cupcake, but it’s actually 70% chocolate mousse surrounding a creme brulee center sitting atop a shortbread cookie.
Ok, so more specifically, from Bakery Nouveau’s website: The base is a disc of shortbread, and on top of that is a dark chocolate mousse, upwards of 75% dark chocolate, with 2 layers of crème brûlée. It’s finished with a very thin chocolate shell, which is sprayed on. The velvet effect you can see is the result of putting the pieces in the freezer for a few minutes to get them nice and cold, and then spraying them with untempered, melted chocolate that has some extra cocoa butter in it.
I couldn’t wait until tomorrow!
From their website, a much better photo:
