Life @ Quantic: this is Halloween!
For its fourth edition, the Quantic Dream pastry contest is spreading a wave of horror: no more cookies, this is Halloween! This time four candidates tried to convince a jury of incorruptible gourmets with their creations, to compete for the title of the most deliciously scary cake of the month. Before the big reveal, let’s start with a review of the stars of the day: the cakes!
Presented by Marie, the Dracula’s Red Velvet Pyjamas: red-tinted vanilla-chocolate cupcakes.
For Maéva went for an unexpected salty twist, that she called Bloody Cake: a cake combining flat leaf parsley / basil / chives, topped with a basil-infused glaze and a roasted garlic tomato coulis.
Émeline made the ghostly Halloween Cake Pops: carrot cake, white chocolate candy melts icing, sugarpaste and food markers for the decoration.
And finally Catherine with her Choutrouilles: black sesame cream puffs with raspberry coulis for the guaranteed thrill!
And it was this last recipe that won unanimously, with the congratulations of the jury! A fair return for Catherine, whose talents as a pastry chef no longer need to be proven in the studio, as she regularly delights the teams with her magnificent cakes!
