I made this dessert for a ladies luncheon at the country club. The "pot" is a chocolate cake with pistachio mousse and caramelized pistachios folded into it. The flower is a sugar cookie decorated with royal icing and a fondant center, stem and leaves. The grass is buttercream.
My inspiration for the mousse came from Aran. I followed her pistachio mousse recipe and also folded in some caramelized pistachios. It is delicious and if you can find pure pistachio paste use it.
