Angel and Demon: Dark and white chocolate entremets

 I make this entrements with the idea of angel and demon in my mind, ^^.

 I believe that each people have some darkest thought in their head, hehe, and we always try to show the angel side of us. 
We don't have to be an angel but we have to keep the darkest side smaller and try our best not to let it get out to hurt other people. The white chocolate mousse and white chocolate glaze represent the sweet and kind feeling and action, do it often to turn it to be your true personality ^^, our goodness will shine, glittering, pure and white. Because when we give kindness, I believe we will receive it too. It's not wrong when we let our darkness come out sometimes, we are human but you have to accept the result. The black chocolate mousse is not only dark from chocolate but with a lot of vanilla, it adds a hint of bitter taste into the mousse too. So each time that you hurt other people remember that you, yourself can get hurt too, both by your own feeling (I always has bad feeling when I speak something that I shouldn't) and the thing that other people might do to you. The red berry cream is our passion, you can make it good or bad, it depends on you. Use your passion to put fuel into your life, make each of your day worth living.
We don't have to be angel to live in this world, our feeling, passion and desire can make this world better too, as long as you don't let your demon side take over your mind.

  7. I am making this right now and I'm just wondering if there is a mistake in the dark chocolate mousse recipe?
    Because I needed to add "only" 90 grams of the creme anglaise, but I only had 80 grams..
    Did I do anything wrong?

    Anyhow, love you blog a lot :)

  10. Hi,
    Love your entremets! It so beautiful and tasty thanks for shearing!
    I was wondering what does diameter and cm mean because usually when I buy cake pan and cake ring for example it say 9-in, 10-in and 10 × 2 or 10"Dia × 2"D and it also say Size: Ø280 h 47 mm -Ø 11.02 h 1.85 inches Volume: 2,5 L it doesn't say diameter and cm? I'm confuse how do you know what is cm and diameter when they don't tell you what cm and diameter to buy cake ring or silicone mold?

    1. Hi, thank you for your compliment!
      Actually there are diameter in cm where I buy them, ^^" and most of the time I love to measure it when crating the recipe too (ok, I'm a bit crazy).
      BTW, when you see Size: Ø280 h , it means 28 cm ^^.

  11. Hey,
    I don't think your crazy I think you are awesome thanks for replying my question! I was wondering can you please tell me all the diameter in cm for TORTAFLEX ROUND CAKE MOLDS that I want to buy to make entremets because it doesn't say the diameter in cm in that website
    that I want to buy.

    1. The diameter in cm is in the end.
      Ex: 5 3/8" diameter x 2" height (135mm x 50mm)
      135mm x 50 mm = 13.5cm x 5cm ^^ (mm=milimeter)
      Now, you can decide which one you want by using the diameter.
      ^^

    2. Hey,
      Thank you so much I really appreciate it!
      so 8 9/16" diameter x 2" height (220mm x 50mm)
      220mm x 50mm = 20.0cm x 5cm (mm = milimeter)
      am I right the cm is 20.0cm x 5cm? And if I purchase TORTAFLEX ROUND CAKE MOLDS I was wondering if the diameter x 2" height is high enough to put layer of mousse, gelee and sponge cake?

      Thank you =)
