Daring Bakers Challenge: Biscuit Joconde Imprime/Entremet

The January 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Astheroshe of the blog accro. She chose to challenge everyone to make a Biscuit Joconde Imprime to wrap around an Entremets dessert.

A.K.A. Pain in my rear.
I tried. And I failed. Miserably. And it hurt. Ha! Mostly because I had to clean the oven afterwards. It was a really neat challenge--but I think it was way up and beyond my talents.

I will say, I will blame the recipe for part of it--it called for "special" ingredients which I didn't have or couldn't get, and I had to substitute or try to make them. is my failed recipe.

See the bottom of the oven? Thats not a good thing. Its not suppose to do that.
And its not suppose to look like this either. Like, not anything like this BY FAR.

So, here is proof that I'm not perfect--I think we all need to be reminded of that every once-in-a-while! Ha!

PS I will NOT try this again--unless I find Almond Flour and a Culinary School Degree. The End.

I am glad you tried..and do not give up. You can make your own almond flour, by grinding the almonds with a little powered sugar...

The first time is always the first attempt was a huge mess as well..but with practice you can get it.

GOOD LUCK! let me know if i can help :)
