crème de la cream
Whipped or custardy cream makes these dreamy desserts decadent, plain and simple. 1. The pastry of Ladurée’s “Chou Nougatine” is filled with vanilla cream and crunchy, nutty nougat. 2. Financier Patisserie’s tiramisu is the classic coffee-withcream combo with mascarpone mousse. 3. This Aux Merveilleux de Fred meringue is a simple piped white swirl. 4. The “Incroyable” from Aux Merveilleux is meringue with speculoos cookie–flavored whipped cream, coated with white-chocolate flakes. 5. In Mille-feuille Bakery’s “Saint Honoré,” caramelized sugar–dipped cream puffs hold vanilla-bean cream.
