Crazier Than Croquembouche
By Jerome Chang of the Dessert Truck
(Lollipops of raspberry gelée, lavender mousse, and madeleine biscuit, in a bed of cocoa nibs; $8 per serving).
Our Verdict: “The mechanics of eating these are tricky, but they’re good (though some palates may confuse the taste of lavender with perfume). They’re really fun—pass them around late at night. But swap the skewer for a blunter stick. These could spear through a guest’s tongue!”
