Gâteau aux Marrons @ Lady M Confections Delicate with a fine crumb, two layers of almond flour cake hug a soft whipped cream center. Crosshatch pipings of chestnut-infused cream, lush and true to flavor, graces the entire surface of the gâteau. For an elegant finish, roasted walnuts and snow sugar.
