I don't have a source for these so I can't say if they're candy or cakes or what but I do know they're not fish. Any guesses as to what is hidden inside?
I've never had a cannelé before, but they look amazing. According to Mowielicious they are crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside and made with rum. Ooh mama I think I need to put on my baking face and tackle some of these babies! Have you had them? What did you think?
Wouldn't this springtimey cake make a lovely hat for a garden party? I went to a wedding performance art thing once where there was a girl dressed as a wedding cake with real cake on her hat. She wandered through the party and bent down so people could take bites. I'm pretty sure anyone with an edible hat would be the life of the party.
