Happy Lunar New Year 2012

One of my best friends just came back to Vancouver recently after he finished his studies in the States. I've made a birthday cake for him this past weekend, a milk chocolate and passion fruit mousse cake. As my friend prefer less sweet desserts, I've reduced the sweetness of the milk chocolate mousse and highlighted the passionfruit more while trying to maintain the flavour balance. I was glad that end result was not too sweet for him and he really enjoyed the cake. The flavour combination was inspired by Pierre Herme's macaron mogador while the chocolate decor was inspired by Pierre Marcolini.

For all my fellow bloggers and readers who are celebrating Chinese New Year, I wish you all Happy Lunar New Year ~ 龍年快樂!
