Kim K.'s insight:

I was a professional baker and pastry chef for several years, and I always found that bundt cakes were much more forgiving than other shapes.  Becuase of the airflow through the middle of the pan, they cook more evenly and the texture is often better.

Fresh Mint Semifreddo | SugarHero!

Fresh Mint Semifreddo | SugarHero! | Easy Dessert Ideas | Scoop.it
Kim K.'s insight:

Just one more semifreddo recipe today!  This one is infused with fresh mint leaves.  Sounds complicated, right?  Nope!  All you have to do to infuse cream with fresh mint is put them in a saucepan, heat them up, and then remove them from the heat and cover the pan.  Let it sit and you have infused cream.

 

That's my favorite thing about homemade desserts like this one.  They sound impressive, but if you can put a pan on the stove, you can make it.  You don't need to make fancy chocolate decorations for the desserts like food bloggers do (unless you want to).
