Almond Raspberry Petit by May Lawrence

learnt how to make these petit four moelleux when I was doing my Pastry Chef Diploma Course at Le Cordon Bleu. I brought these home from school and styled it by adding fresh raspberries to give it a bit of “oomph” and created an afternoon tea story with it. The photo was shot late afternoon in my home studio using natural light
