IMBB? #16-A Whimsical Breakfast.
It's another Is My Blog Burning?, hosted this month by Seattle Bon Vivant, and featuring eggs.
As I recently told Julia of Aroma Cookery (so happy you're back, by the way), I've been scrambling to get my entries together for both IMBB? and EoMEoTE.
I wanted to do something as different as possible for IMBB?, and while the basic recipe isn't too spectacular, I think my entry, in full, is pretty neat.
Allow me to present Meringue 'Eggs', White Chocolate 'Bacon', and Almond Paste 'Toast'; a whimsical breakfast plate.
Using Maida Heatter's recipe for Meringue Mushrooms (minus the cocoa), I piped meringue onto egg-shaped patterns on parchment paper, baking at a low temperature for a long time.
I fused two 'egg' halves together with some white chocolate, forming my 'egg'.
White chocolate melted with a few paramount crystals, poured into a pan until cool and set, then cut into bacon-like strips, and painted with icing color.
Almond paste shaped to resemble bread, and painted around the sides and edges with icing color to create a crust.
Pretty simple, but very fun!
