Le Miserable

My heart is broken this morning. All the hardwork I put in yesterday has turned into nothingness. The photos you see are supposed to be Le Fraisier. But my little experiment turned out to be le miserable.

I must have done something wrong with the pastry cream. It tastes pretty good on its own but simply refuse to firm up in the cake. See how the pastry cream oozes out once I remove the side of the springform pan?

And the strawberries start to fall down after this photo is taken...

My friend asked why do I call myself "novice baker". This post is a fine example why.. Now I have a whole Le Miserable in the fridge that I don't know what to do with it. I guess I will just use a spoon and dig directly into the pan. I will surely feel miserable after finishing it on my own.

Just kidding. How crazy am I to eat it all up by myself!

I also think you are definitely more than just a novice baker =)

And though I don't know what a "Le Fraiser" is, yours doesn't look bad at all to me. In fact, it must taste really yum!

it still looks good in photo. Maybe don't think it's cream but sauce, actually I don't mind if you serve me a giant piece with this yummy sauce allover!

thanks BP! It tasted ok, but it would be nicer if the mousseline firmed up. Need more strawberries to try it again!

Thanks for visiting. It's really more saucy than creamy...I will serve you something nicer if you want ;P
