Wow your dinner guests by mastering one of these 16 Impressive Entremet Recipes and uncover the patisserie chef within you.
Entremet is a dessert of French origin composed of multiple layers, textures and flavors that complement and enhance each other. It's more complicated than your average cake and with so many elements it's often made and assembled over two days. There's no set shape or size when it comes to entremet but it consists of at least three different layers - the base cake layer, different mousse layers, mirror glaze and decorations. Some entremets can get very advanced but we have included some simpler recipes for you to try. Entremets are perfect for special occasions and dinner parties and if you have one coming up get inspired with our 16 Impressive Entremet Recipes round-up.
