Ordering the happy ending

Ah, the difficulties of wedding planning. Picking the groom was easy; it's picking the dessert that's hard. And the cheesy, overwrought descriptions aren't making things any easier.
  • Caramel Mystique - "A South American dessert with a tropical twist. A chocolate cake, filled with dulce de leche mousse, a chocolate dipped sesame nougat brittle layer, banana mousse center, wrapped in a chocolate jaconde oval pattern, apricot glaze finish, topped with a milk chocolate tuile garnish."
  • San Francisco Cable Car Dome – "Dessert lovers in the city by the bay are discovering our newest star. A chocolate mousse dome with a Cointreau cream center on a hazelnut dacquoise base, velvet chocolate finish, a generous drizzle of chocolate decadence glaze, garnished with a chocolate sunset transfer and a chocolate cable car with a hint of gold leaf."
  • Chocolate Pyramid – "A pyramid of chocolate mousse on a chocolate sponge base, raspberry mousse center, chocolate velvet finish, topped with a chocolate ganache rosette, garnished with chocolate chard and a fresh raspberry."
  • Chocolate Marquise – "A cylinder shaped mousse on a chocolate sponge base raspberry cream center, garnished with chocolate fan and fresh raspberry.

    Okay, I accidentally my post the first time so I'll post it again. LOL

    That Chocolate Marquise looks scrumptious. I don't eat a lot of chocolate, but when I do, there's nothing better with it than raspberries!
