YUM-Parisian macarons-need to work up the courage to try this out!
Creme brulee-one of my favs! With that hard sugar shell on top...drooling.
The Guimauve-aka, pretty pink marshmallows.
Gesine seems really cool. She used to work as a big shot executive in Hollywood, but she left to follow her passion and open The Gesine Confectionary in Vermont. How AWESOME is that? I want to live in Vermont and run a confectionary! She writes about it in her first book, My Life from Scratch: A Sweet Journey of Starting Over, One Cake at a Time, and also on her blog. I highly recommend Sugar Baby if you're interested in a different take on a baking cookbook-this is the first one I've come across that deals exclusively with sugar work, and I found it to be unique and enlightening!
