Hey, I have been living under a rock for a few months, but the sun is shining and it's time to put together the menus for the later spring and summer. What is going on out there? Any groovy new items adorning your sweets menus? What has worked in the past?
I love to ask this question each season to see what is going on in the industry. It gets lonely in the bake shop on your own :p
New items for us are, Coconut Ginger Flan with caramel popcorn: Pecan tart with rum in phyllo, rhum caramel sauce served with banana gelato: Burbon Vanilla cheese cakes with honey pineapple compote and lyechee, exotic and raspberry sauces round out the newbies.
Looks like I will be flying solo this summer with my own shop. YIKES!!!!! :eek:

pam spray a muffin tin or 4 oz single serving tin, 6 layered buttered sheets, cut 1/6 of a sheet of phyllo stuff into the tin. place pecans and the pie syrup into the "cup" and bake. Pops out, serve warm dusted with cocoa or 10x sugar.

That sounds lovely... :)

So does your solo gig! Please tell what sort of operation you are planning. It must be a ton of work (but worth it, right?).

The newest thing on my menu is a raspberry and citrus martini. I pipe pretty lines of ganache up the sides of a martini glass, and fill with layers of mousses and fruit curds. It's very refreshing. I serve it with a tuile in the shape of a bow, with long ribbons. Easy for huge parties, and nice presentation.
