I took them out of the oven and tried to cut out circles using a biscuit cutter... also didnt go well. I got 3 or 4 ugly circleish looking things out and molded them on a muffin tin to make a bowl. I also made a mango mousse to go with it. I have to say, the mango mousse was the only thing that went well in this recipe. Tragedy. really. I'll have to add the recipes later, its late. I'm sure my DB buddies have some glorious successes. They are such talented artists! check them all out here!!

DB: Tuiles...French for distaster
This challenge turned out rather disastrous for me. 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 really did try...but as you can see...not so good for me. First off, I'm not sure what this "thick plastic" is people have easily accessible laying around their house to carve stencils out of... I did my best to pipe circular/ovalish shapes. The shapes then spread out while baking to cover the sheet and drip down the front of my oven...as you can see.
