It ain't pretty...

But it does taste good:-)

When I first saw the challenge I had the brilliant idea of making tuile butterflies that I would use to decorate cupcakes...but that didn't happen. I still think it was a great idea but I decided to go the easy route this time. I just freeformed the tuiles and let them harden (well, it was still kind of warm when I ate one) over some glasses to make an edible ice cream bowl - VOILA! It turned out wonderfully, even if all of them aren't as pretty as I would have hoped.

As you can see they are a little brown. I didn't burn them...I just didn't read the recipe correctly and thought that I was supposed to add the cocoa powder into the batter. No harm done. It's delicious with cherry vanilla ice cream.

This month's challenge is brought to us by Karen of Bake My Day and Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte aka Kochtopf. They have chosen Tuiles from The Chocolate Book by Angélique Schmeink and Nougatine and Chocolate Tuiles from Michel Roux.

I think it sounds delicious to add chocolate into the batter!
