Well, it's Daring Baker time, and I attempted the challenge but it was a BIG fail! The April 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Evelyne of the blog Cheap Ethnic Eatz. Evelyne chose to challenge everyone to make a maple mousse in an edible container. Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite from April 27th to May 27th at http://thedaringkitchen.com/! Well, my plan was to make little angelfood cake containers, put the mousse in, add an "egg" to the top and have little Easter baskets. WEEEELLLL, first the angelfood burned. I don't know what the deal was because the middle of the cake was fine but the outside was TOTALLY burned. Okay, containers...ruined. I could come up with something else. Next, I made the mousse...or tried. I decided to make the version with tofu. Let's just say, it's still in my refrigerator and after sitting there for 48 hours, it's still soup! Oh, well...I guess with having done so many challenges for this to be the first complete failure is pretty good! Stop by the above link to find other BEAUTIFULLY SUCCESSFUL mousses!
