            • Chef Nicolas Guercio innovates with an original creation: a trompe-l'oeil yule log reminiscent of a tangerine placed in a Christmas slipper. This sweet creation combines a light tangerine, a soft chocolate gluten-free cookie and a dark chocolate crisp. A mandarin crème brûlée, a Valrhona 64% dark chocolate mousse and a mandarin jelly enhance the flavors of this dessert.

                    In addition to these delicious logs, we would like to provide you with our 5 essential tips for optimal use of our plastic moulds. Follow these instructions to preserve the properties of our molds and bake with peace of mind.

                    5 essential user tips

                    • Store the molds in a cool, dry place, away from heat and humidity. Keep the molds in the original cover and carton for optimal protection.

                    • Avoid placing them near sources of heat or flammable materials that could affect the quality of the plastic. Handle molds with care and avoid contact with sharp objects.

                    • Use the molds within one year after delivery date to ensure best use.

                    • Tolerate slight dimensional variations up to 1 mm and a margin of 7% regarding the net weight, in accordance with the indications on the product sheets.

                    • To facilitate the unmolding of the desserts, pour hot water into the "skirt" (the base) of the moulds. This allows a smooth release, ideal especially for frozen pastries.

                      By following these tips, you will extend the life of your recycled plastic molds while guaranteeing optimal results with each preparation. At Boutique Petit, we make every effort to offer you superior quality pastry moulds, made in France and respectful of the environment.
