jewel dessert ideas?
Our supper club is jewel-themed this month, and I'm dessert. I'm devoid of inspiration for some reason, so would love to hear any ideas of jewel or bijoux-themed desserts. Broadly applicable is fine - we once did a dinner themed "speed bump" and we made black-and-white cookies for dessert (speed bump = sleeping policeman = black-and-whites, get it?)
Anyway, I can get past making something ru-barb-y red. And I may end up doing that, but welcome alternative suggestions!
My first thought was a gelee, too, but a clear one with berries ("jewels") suspended in it.
You could add blueberries to this prosecco gelee with raspberries and evoke rubies and sapphires: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...
Here's a Champagne gelee with red currants that you could sub other berries for: http://www.marthastewart.com/259389/c...
Foil wrapped chocolates?
Luster dust on chocolates???
St Basil cake (it's a Catholic thing...very googable).
I like the jewelry box by wyogal a lot, too.
I agree on pomegranate being jewel like. Nigella Lawson has a lovely pomegranate eton mess recipe and I think in one of her books there's even a recipe called pomegranate jewel cake!
Some sort of layer cake with fruits inside then decorate the top in diamond segments with jellies of said fruits. Red strawberries, green kiwi, gold apricot, blue.... Well forget blue.
That's what I came up with anyway. You'd probably need a light base like buttercream to get the colors to pop though.
Please take pictures of whatever you make :)
