CHOCOLAT FIN’S CLASSIC CAKES (5): Fig Tile

fig-tile-1

I just could not resist buying this latest creation by Chocolat Fin when I saw it! Measuring 12 by 14cm, the price tag of less than 10 US $ was just too much of a bargain! I can always cut it to size later for my students! LOL

It is fairly simple in concept but certainly asks for professional flair and savoir-faire/skills!
It is first laid on a thin cooky tart base, then spread ove by a fairly thick layer of almond cream/marzipan containg bits of dried figs.

The center was subsequently decorated with a generous amount of slices of dried figs “cut across the body”.
The whole was brushed with a generous amount of delicious apricot jam.
A delicacy reminiscent of the Middle East, Turkey and Northern Africa!

To be savoured with a great coffee!
