Financier Patisserie has a Valentine’s Day collection of pastries that are inspired by the shape of the heart and flavors related to the holiday.
If you have a large spread like I do, throw a sweet and festive afternoon tea with friends – whether or not you are you have a significant other in your life.
The heart-shaped “couer” line of cakes come in two sizes, the small (serves up to 2 people) is $15 and the large (serves 4 to 6 people) is $35.
Their passion au chocolate is consisted of a layer of moist almond macaron, dark chocolate mousse, passion fruit-almond mousse, and glazed chocolate. Delectable and light, creamy textures. I adored the balance of slightly sweet dark chocolate and the complex tart and fruity passion fruit.
The tiramisu coeur de café was a sublime tiramisu. The flavors comes together tastes like a creamy cappuccino. The coffee flavored ladyfinger biscuit gave it some substance to the layers of cloud-like mascarpone mousse and coffee mascarpone mousse.
The coeur de berries really looks like a Valentine’s Day cake with its bright red color of the raspberry glaze. It’s layered with a lady finger biscuit, ethereal berries cheesecake mousse, red berries mousse, and topped with the shiny, tart raspberries glaze. A wonderful balance of sweet, tart and fruity raspberry flavors.
Financier also has an adorable version of bi-colored macarons (a sleeve of 7 macarons for $10.50) of pink and brown to reflect the colors of raspberry and chocolate. The slightly crisp almond meringues sandwiching the creamy raspberry chocolate ganache.
If you need a last minute Valentine’s Day dessert, Financier has many options to satisfy the sweet tooth. Happy Valentine’s Day!
