Often, leftovers from baking projects dictate what I?m going to make next, so for Easter this year, leftover passion fruit curd went into the mango passion tart (PPB) and extra white chocolate mousseline was used for Miette?s Tomboy (RHC).

The tart was a little labour intensive but worth the effort ?.. it was fabulous!

I?ve made the Tomboy a few times now, even as cupcakes, but my 6? pans are only 2? high so I baked it in 2 layers instead of torting 1 tall cake. This one?s a little top heavy with buttercream but I was determined to use it all ? I couldn?t face leftovers of leftovers smile

Wow, Sophia!  Both of those look amazing!  I am definitely going to bake the Tomboy again BUT as a 9”.  It’s a delicious cake isn’t it? 

I love how you used your leftovers!  I do it all the time and often make way more of a component just to have extras!  If I ever have passion fruit puree in my hands, I know what I will make!  You must have had some happy guests.

LOL!  I think I have some of those cluttering up my freezer, I should learn from you smile

Your tart is gorgeous, really perfect.  I love getting to see a slice of that because in the book there is only the full tart and you can’t see the passion cream.  Cute Tomboy, too!

Thanks everyone! The tart, in particular, was a lot of fun to make.

You must have had some happy guests.

I really like the Tomboy…I’ve been wanting to try it as a 9” cake as well. Though the cupcake domes cracked - it didn’t matter as they were covered in buttercream - they worked out really well as the cake holds together so well that the cupcakes could be eaten out of hand without leaving a trail of crumbs!

My family was very happy with the desserts….they know now that when something special comes to the table, it’s likely to be one of Rose’s recipes!

I don’t know how adept I am at this, Julie, the tart generated new leftovers: a thin layer of sponge cake and some cake crumbs smile !

And would that happen to be Bill’s Chocolate Mousseline smile? It’s my most requested chocolate frosting recipe and my family’s favourite! Thank you for sharing it.
