Sweet Potato Mont Blanc (For Lazy Bakers)

Let's make easy Mont Blanc cakes with store-bought chiffon Swiss rolls! You could also use homemade roll cakes.

Ingredients: 6 mont blancs

Chiffon Swiss rolls
6 slices
Sweet potato cream:
Sweet potato (boiled and passed through a sieve)
100 g
Sugar
10 g
Rum
1 teaspoon
Heavy cream
50 g
Milk
30 g
Whipped cream:
Heavy cream
100 g
Sugar
10 g
Vanilla extract
as needed
Toppings:
Marron glacés or candied chestnuts
as needed
Gold leaf powder
as needed
Powdered sugar
as needed

Steps

1. Combine all ingredients for the sweet potato cream into a bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until it forms a stiff peak. Pack into an icing bag attached with a Mont Blanc nozzle.
2. Combine ingredients for the whipped cream in a separate bowl. Whisk until it forms stiff peaks. Pack into another icing bag with a round nozzle.
3. Top with a marron glacé or candied chestnut onto a slice of chiffon Swiss roll. Squeeze whipped cream. Then squeeze the sweet potato cream all around.
4. Use a tea strainer to top the sweet potato cream with powdered sugar.
5. Put the remaining whipped cream on top, then top with a marron glacé or candied chestnut cut in half. Also garnish with gold leaf powder to make it even more elegant!
6. I slightly messed up the squeezing part... but it was still delicious!
