I'm not sure. But if you find out please let me know. They look delicious.
That's exactly what it is. And those texture mats are not cheap! You can still do it on a silpat though.
I was going to say a collar of thoughts but after reading 7yyrt's link on the jaconde, I agree that it looks like that for sure!
Thanks!! They look so cool. Have any of you ever made one? Is it hard?
That's neat! Could you do it with parchment paper and collar it? It's worth trying...
you take the jaconde batter and mix in chocolate for the color or some food coloring. I used a painters tool (those that do faux finishes on the wall) over the batter once it is on a sheet pan. You have your cake layers filling or whatever you are using. You cut a strip of Jaconde to line a round pan springform is easiest. You layer your cake and filling or whatever you are using and let it set up and remove from your pan. I hope I didn't make it sound too confusing. It really isn't that hard.
It is actually quite easy! I use Silpat to make them!
How very cool! Thanks for the links to this technique!
