Apology for not updating the blog more regularly.
This recipe was long forgotten & so did the photos.
These entremets have intense lychee flavours & balanced with the tanginess of raspberry.
It consists of 5 components: genoise, lychee jelly insert, white chocolate mousse, fresh raspberry & lychee jelly.
Happy baking :)
