Sweets I’ve made this week

So this week, I was practicing with star tips and pastry bags and I made a Curious George cake. (Because Igor loves both Curious George and cake.)

I’ve also been experimenting with different truffle recipes, trying to decide which of them I may enter in a candy contest.

This week; white chocolate, pistachio, and pomegranate cream centers. Some dipped in white chocolate, and some dipped in milk chocolate. White chocolate is significantly harder to work with as a dipping chocolate than I anticipated. I probably won’t be doing that again. But the cream center is amazingly good, and the milk chocolate enrobing I think gives a better flavor profile than the white chocolate anyway. I need to try it with a dark chocolate also. I think that may be really good.

I’m going to be doing an instructable on how to make these, with all the steps and the ingredients, because frankly, these are too good not to share. :)
