Sweet treats

Today, I decided to share with you a couple of the pastries that we brought home from Sofitel Manila's Galette Patisserie & Chocolaterie: an exotic fruit tart with berries, grapes, pineapple, mango and dragon fruit

and a strawberry and chocolate mousse with white and dark chocolate leaves (which I think look like lopsided bunny ears)…

Happy Birthday, Hilda! These cakes are little works of art. I think the hands that created them would be delighted they ended up in the home (and the tummy) of such a dear person. May this be a year of good health and good cheer.
