European Mauviel Bakeware
European cooking encompasses rich flavors and techniques to create a huge variety of delectable dishes. Mauviel Bakeware takes baking to a whole new level with copper canelé and charlotte molds that are designed to withstand very high heat. Canelé cakes started in the Bordeaux area of France centuries ago. They have a gooey, delicious center and are oftentimes spiked with rum and finished with a caramelized crust. The copper molds shape the pastry into an exotic formation that allows the crust to brown properly. Charlotte confections mold gelatin and ice cream desserts. The copper exterior is stunning and can be stored on a wall or a shelf to add to your kitchen or dining room decor.
Mix the ingredients for the patisseries in stainless-steel, melamine or glass mixing bowls. Copper mixing bowls match the copper molds and are very durable with stainless-steel bases and a copper finish. Most mixing bowls are stackable to conserve storage space. They come in sets of three or five with varying sizes to accommodate the batches you will prepare.
Once your baking concoctions are finished baking, make them even more elaborate by decorating them with decorating tools. Drizzle a glaze or layer icing on the cakes and pastries to make them irresistible. Your tasty dessert will certainly complete a wonderful meal. Or give it to someone as a gift wrapped up in a cake box tied with ribbon for a homemade delicacy. If you take it to a neighborhood picnic or a church covered dish event, be ready for lots of requests for these patisseries in the future.
If you’re serving the dessert at your own table, serve it on an elegant tray or platter. Like the old adage says, “you eat with your eyes first.” The right platter makes a wonderful table presentation. We have a large selection at Williams-Sonoma, from porcelain to melamine and rustic wood. Monograms are available on many for personalization. The trays are very chic and can be easily stored on a stand on a dining room buffet or propped up on a kitchen counter.
Coffee always goes great with dessert. Serve a decaf espresso or an Irish coffee in coffee mugs. Mugs come in classic glass or white porcelain. You might prefer French designs, brightly colored cups or copper that matches the molds. Guests and family members are more likely to linger for extended conversation as they sip on their coffee. They might also want a second helping of the delicious dessert you prepared.
