  • Mood:

pie!

Last night, abrichar, ghotighued, and emakelle came over to watch some TV. Of course, since this crew never does anything so mundane without making it into An Event, the evening became the official unveiling of Erin's Frankenstein Dessert Monstrosity of Wonder and Majesty.

Erin explains in her blog that "Frankenstein" is because the Dessert is a hybrid of
  • home-made PIE SHELL, into which is spread a substrate of
  • vanilla bean ICE CREAM, upon which are placed several
  • chocolate mousse CUPCAKES, onto which is spread a small mountain of actual
  • CHOCOLATE MOUSSE, all of which is then sealed with a mound of
  • MERINGUE, to achieve a Baked Alaska effect.
"Wonder and Majesty" are, of course, self-explanatory.

The concept was days in the making, and I caught the final stages of the creation in digitized form for generations to behold.

Erin prepares to heap the mousse atop the cupcakes.
Isaac manfully mixes the meringue.

It refused to peak. After about 20 minutes, I suggested using a stiffening agent. Hee har.
Stiff enough!

Erin skillfully seals the moussed cupcakes
under a cloud of meringue,
thereby preventing their escape.
Into the oven for 10 minutes at 425.

In theory, long enough to bake the meringue, but short enough not to melt the ice cream. I admit that I was dubious.
OMG DOOD.
I ... don't know what was going on here.
Cutting this masterpiece required a three-person ballet.
And a good time was had by all.

Well done, Erin! A++++++ would eat again!

The sugar content of this incredibulous confection is not measurable by any system currently known to man (and as such easily surpasses that of the perhaps more blatantly Easter-themed peep turducken), and thus having been fatally understimated by all present, we commenced to bounce off the walls for the next two hours while watching Planet Earf.

Isaac had two pieces, and he was talking so fast that we could barely understand him. Fortunately, Erin took the leftovers home with her, or I'd be dead from sucrose overdose by now. :)
