White Chocolate Crepes with Rosy Cherry Sauce

My dearest friends, it'd be a very short post as I am going to go to Hong Kong for a visit. I'll miss you all, and look forwards to "seeing" you when I return in the end of August.

These crepes are spreaded with white chocolate cream (store-bought), stacked up high, and cut to smaller pieces by a copper cookie cutter.

Remember I just made the cherry sauce in the previous post? This time I added in some red (organic) rose patals.

To create a frosty look on the patals, brush them with egg white before coating with fine sugar. They look impressive and taste even better.

My friends, hope you all have a great summer!

Have a wonderful break, I will be off too next week!:)

Yummy pancakes. In India, we do use Rose petals in cooking, sugared ones and Rose petals in syrup for desserts. Looks beautiful! See you when you come back!:)
