a french baking lesson.

i simply adore time spent baking in the kitchen.
there is just something so lovely about tying on an apron.
whisking away. creating sweet treats for the sweeties in my life. 

the other day i had the absolute pleasure of taking a private baking class
with the french pastry extraordinaire from the cassis bakery.
i instantly became dear friends with monsieur daniele.
the most darling. most lovable. most cheerful man.
the artist behind those beautiful pastries that line the windows of cassis.

you can only imagine my intense joy
to be working in the kitchen with such a culinary genius.
to be testing all the goodness as we went along.
& to learn a few secret tricks of the trade. 


we whisked the most decadent mocha mousse. 


and filled buttery tart shells.


the beginnings of completely indulgent mocha tartlets.


we dipped them into the finest of all chocolates.


and made rosebuds out of almond paste.
which he makes look so simple.


however. it was not so simple.
{daniele is a very patient man}


nevertheless. we kept trying till i mastered 
the art of the almond paste rosebud.


then we topped our mocha mousse tarts.


to create the loveliest. prettiest. sweetest little treats.
aren't they just the daintiest pretties you ever have seen?!


then we moved on to the fruit tarts.
we filled the chocolate glazed shells with cream.


and sliced fresh fruits.
i just love how vivid these colors are.


we meticulously placed each little piece of fruit.


and then glazed them with a piping hot melted marmalade.
these were absolutely divine. 
{and unbelievably beautiful if i do say so myself}


i cannot think of anything sweeter than a box full
of sweet treats that are just as pretty as they are delicious!

thank you. sweet daniele. for our wonderful little baking date.
i can hardly wait for round two in the cassis kitchen.
xoxox.
