Daring to do it: Edible Containers (Sweet)

For the first time since joining the Daring Kitchen, I have had to sit out a challenge. Between craziness at home and Passover, I just didn't have the time, energy, availability and ingredients to give the challenge the attention it would have deserved. Nonetheless, here you go...

The April 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Evelyne of the blog Cheap Ethnic Eatz. Evelyne chose to challenge everyone to make a maple mousse in an edible container. Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite from April 27th to May 27th at!

I did attempt to make some chocolate cups on my own, but they totally failed to keep their shape, and the warm weather ensured that they melted (ok, softened...) despite time in the freezer. I did help my sister with her chocolate cups, which turned out beautifully. Check those out on her blog.

Evelyne, thank you for hosting the challenge this month. You did inspire some beautiful creations. Please look here to see what my fellow Daring Bakers came up with! And don't forget to vote!
