How do they make these? (pic inside)

I wonder how they make these at the fancy places

do they use cake molds for it? or they use a cutter?

and just look how beautiful and clean the cut is

I've asked before about getting a clean cut but I never have achieved this level of perfection!

that's definitely done inside a mold or form..

The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

What are they? I agree with bucky. Some sort of mold has been used. If they are ice cream, I'd say you could make them using the right diameter PVC pipe. They're beautiful.

I'm guessing they used rings.. probably you could make each layer using a tuna fish can as the ring and then stack the layers.

Maybe they use some tear away lining. Either a paper baking mold or a hard sided mold lined with parchment paper. I think the white cake layers are precut cut with a biscuit type cutter and then layered into the mold with soften more liquid layers (ices).

At any rate it looks yummy.

On edit: Dave's prolly right as you can smooth the top layer level with the ring and make it look so finished.

They are pretty. I can tell they use the high rings with a removable bottom to make it easy to get out.

I don't think molds. they're hard to get the stuff out and it will ruin the top of the dessert., and it would be hard to make each one individually! Plus they use it in french bakeries and they make a lot of these so molds is not the answer.

I think they're currant mousse dessert.

I guess.

No, the layers here are perfect, they were not stacked for sure.

no it would be too expensive for the bakery to use disposable things.

I think that too. they're called red currant delice.

Hmm maybe, we need a pastry chef to tell us.

Well when I buy stuff like this I have to peel off a hard plastic liner from around them. I'd go with that.
