We've taken the guesswork out of making these patisserie beauties, so you can prepare them at home (for less than 25 cents a pop!). Be sure to weigh the ingredients precisely, and follow the step-by-step directions to make meringue, fold in the almond mixture, and pipe the batter into rounds. Delight one and all with the gorgeous, delicious, professional-looking results.
With their sugar-brushed flower petals and fragrant, rose-flavored glaze, these delicate cupcakes are pretty in pink. On the inside, jewels of candied ginger are hidden in a zesty ginger cake that's just sweet enough to make you, well, blush.
We reinvented a classic pastry as an homage to the rose: Pastry cream and whipped cream -- the first flavored with rose syrup, the second with rose water -- are layered in tender pate a choux shells and garnished with petals.
Each silken spoonful of these pale-pink puddings will leave you -- and your loved one -- more enchanted than the last. A splash of rose water lends the simple, elegant dessert a delicate floral bouquet and a flavor that melds perfectly with a garnish of raspberries and lychees. Ginger-laced, heart-shaped sugar cookies offer a sweetly spicy crunch.
