DB January 2009 - tuille

My first daring baker challenge!! I have been wanting to be a daring baker since I first stumbled on one of their post 4 months ago. Becoming a daring baker might be one of my initial reason why I put up this blog. A community filled with passionate baker?! What can be more perfect. So here I go, finally taking the plunge of becoming one. I felt like I belonged in this community. My friends (M in particular) used to shake their heads in disbelief and thought I was crazy for the amount of effort and time I spent baking. And especially the effort to beautifully wrapped and design all the nick nacks everytime I give away my treats. When I found there are a lot of people who is doing the same thing maybe even more in the food blogging community, I felt right at home.
When I first joined up in mid December, I forgot to calculate my trip in January which will fall in the same date as the submission date for the January challenge. So in the midst of my chaos, I made my colourful flower tuilles. I paired them with quick & simple sorbet to complement the warm Australian weather.

Since I am currently in a place with snail-like speed of an internet connection, and I have to sneak to a coffee shop with wi-fi to get connected, I can only afford a short post.
Hope you enjoy my first daring baker’s entry. =)

This month's challenge is brought to us by Karen of Bake My Day and Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte aka Kochtopf. They have chosen Tuiles from The Chocolate Book by Angélique Schmeink and Nougatine and Chocolate Tuiles from Michel Roux.

Please visit other Daring Bakers to see their interpretations of the challenge.
