Daring Baker Challenge - Joconde Imprime - Passion Fruit Mousse Pie

Para ler em Português, clique aqui.

I'm posting DB Challenge very late this month!
This month Astheroshe from the Blog Accro challenged us to make joconde imprime.

"Joconde imprime /entremets. A joconde imprime (French Baking term) is a decorative design baked into a light sponge cake providing an elegant finish to desserts/torts/entremets/ formed in ring molds. A joconde batter is used because it bakes into a moist, flexible cake. The cake batter may be tinted or marbleized for a further decorative effect."

This sponge turns simple pies into beautiful desserts.
Unfortunatelly mine didn’t work out as I wanted. I wanted to make stripes but I didn’t find the tool to buy. Even though, I tried to make with a fork but it failed because the strippes wer too thin and they closed while baking.
I made another one, but as I would use AT pie’s bottom, I didn’t make any particular design, because I was sure that the stripes would be like expected.
Well, I had to use the dough the way it was, because as allways I let to make the recipe too late (26th Day of the month)
But the dough is so delicious and I made a passion fruit and white chocolate ganache pie that is really tasty!
But I’m still challenged by joconde imprime. So I decided to buy the stripe tool and then I WILL post my recipe here.

The joconde recipe you find here, with great helpfull pictures.
