Challenge accepted: Petits Fours...

continuing the bake off theme, my next challenge was to create some petits fours.
i've made my fair share of madeleines before so this left like quite an easy one to do and i event managed to kill 2 birds with one stone! not only did this cover the bake of the week but it was also John Whaite's book club bake, so i entered it into a competition.




i was concentrating so hard on getting everything right with these that i completely forgot to take pictures of me making them, perhaps i shall revisit this at a later date.
the book club competition asked for you to create a bunch of John's rose madeleines. 




the recipe calls for them to be dipped in pink fondant and then drizzled with white chocolate. Personally i have to be in the right mood for white chocolate and this was not one of those times so i went for dark chocolate instead. i quite like the bold lines! has a bit more of an impact.







 i took lots of photos and entered them into the competition. sadly i didn't win the prize but i did win something...




...i won the prize of being able to eat them! SCORE!
