9 of 12: 9 Ladies Dancing - Pavlova Crepe Dancer!
Here I took 2 dessert and sculpted them to make a dancer with a full skirt for "9 Ladies Dancing!" -- who is also light and delicious. Haha! :)
I decided to make the dancer torso from a pavlova since I successfully made one the other day for 7 Swans-a-swimming.
For the skirt or dress I decided to make crepes. On the Food Network, Christmas Cookie Challenge, I saw someone make a ballerina using pizzelle cookies which are sort of small thin waffle-like cookies, but I don't have a pizelle cookies or the mold, so I decided to use crepes, which I thought would resemble tulle in a skirt.
What I used:
- 4 egg whites (room temperature)
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- ~1/2 cup to 1 cup of sugar (You mostly add the sugar for some sweetness)
- 1 2/3 cup of Flour
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups of milk
- 2 tablespoons of melted butter
- pinch of salt
I was so proud when I was making the Pavlova. I got the egg whites to be stiff peaks.
Then I used a plastic bag and snipped the corner and piped a torso and baked them for ~90 min. at 240 degrees.
I made the crepe batter, but I also add pink and a small touch of purple food coloring to the batter. I put it in the fridge to set for an hour or 2. Also sort of like "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies." :)
I stacked them and I let some get kind of wavy, so it looks like a tulle skirt. I didn't put anything in between them, but you can put chocolate, cream, or fruit in between each layer to make a real crepe cake.
I do not have an edible marker right now, but you could add a little face if you want to.
This would be cute for any princess or dancing part or Moulin Rouge theme as well.
Cute! Light & Delicious! Give it a try! We are good at this!
