New Desserts

 I think my dream job is dreaming up desserts and testing new recipes.  It is the aspect of the current job that I enjoy the most.  This is where the creativity flows and I get to put my brain to work.  I enjoy my job on a day to day basis but most of the work I do is routine nearly to the point of mindless.  Babysitting is the part I enjoy the least :-P. 
Lychee Raspberry Mousse Cake with Anglaise, Raspberry Sauce 
and a white chocolate straw.  
Lychee is a tropical fruit native to the Orient.  I think it tastes like roses smell, one of the guys I work with says cherries and bananas, another banana and watermelon.  The red velvet texture on the outside is tinted cocoa butter that is sprayed on.

 Sampling of Fruit Bruschettas - left is Polenta Pound Cake with Basil Strawberries, middle is Lemon Ginger Pound Cake with Brown Sugar Glazed Peaches, right is Almond Cake with Mango, Pineapple, Kiwi and Mint it's served with lemon-lime sorbet.
This dessert was a lot of fun to put together.  Hopefully people "get it".  It will become the dessert for the prix fixe "feature menu" where people can order a predetermined 3 or 4 courses for a set price.
