January 2011 Challenge - Délicieux Gâteau

So I'm finally back on the Daring Bakers trail, and what an amazing challenge to come back to!

Blog Checking Lines : The January 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Astheroshe of the blog accro. She chose to challenge everyone to make a Biscuit Joconde Imprime to wrap around an Entremets dessert.

The Biscuit Joconde Imprime is a patterned, thin sponge intended to wrap around a dessert. It gives a marvellously intricate look to any simple enough dessert, and is actually quite easy to make. It consists of a paste with which the pattern is made and a sponge batter which makes up the bulk of the imprime. We were given the freedom to use any dessert we wished, we were required only that the Imprime was around it!
