Payard's Mikado Cake

GG Mora | Dec 26, 2004 10:40 AM

I wanted to make a spectacular dessert for yesterday's dinner, so I turned to Francois Payard's "Simply Sensational Desserts" and settled on his Mikado Cake. It was a smashing success, even though I failed miserably at making chocolate "cigarettes" and ended up with simple shavings instead.

Layers of hazelnut meringue, praline paste (I substituted Nutella), bittersweet chocolate mousse and dark chocolate glaze.
