    Was thinking of a Christmas Mille Feuille ...chocolate and peppermint
    Then something went astray

    What do we think of using, instead of pastry cream, chocolate BUTTERcream (initially, also with vanilla / peppermint buttercream, but probably not) , coarsly crushed candy cane powder, and then coat the top with white royal icing striped with red

    Any thoughts?
    With thanks in advance

    I like what you're suggesting! However I wouldn't use buttercream unless you're planning a thin layer, that would be a heck of a lot of butter otherwise. How about making a chocolate creme pat? I think the rest sounds fantastic though. Maybe add some mint to the icing too, yummmm :D

    An old mentor of mine used to say: “when all else doesn’t seem right: CHECK THE OBVIOUS “
