This is beautiful! The blueberries with a hint of almond would be so tasty! What a gorgeous summer dessert!!

I love that you were able to use your mom’s molds! Isn’t it funny how you read about this dessert as a kid and now you’re making it! I wish I’d used blueberries, the raspberries were almost too delicate.

You are so much more observant than me… I read that book and have no recollection of blancmange, LOL.

I agree… it seems so light but isn’t a guilt-free dessert at all.

Anyway, yours looks wonderful and I love that you did it in a decorative mold. I must try that next time.

What a great idea to add almond extract! Guess I’ll have to make it again soon. May try a different berry just for fun.

That’s so pretty. Love your mother’s copper moulds too. I think I’m in love with these as well. The panna cotta was a fave with me; looks like I’ve discovered it’s French cousin with this weeks TWD! Gorgeous!

Absolutely gorgeous.

Gorgeous – I love the mold you used! Your version with the blueberries and almond extract sounds yummy!

I loved Little Women – such a wonderful book! Exciting to finally figure out what a blancmange is 🙂

GORGEOUS! I love that mold! And I loved this with blueberries! And I LOVE little women. Seriously. Read the book a million times. Watched the movie (Winona Ryder/Susan Sarandon/Gabriel Byrnes) a trillion times. This past Christmas, I watched a marathon of all of the versions of LW on AMC… Loved the June Allyson/Elizabeth Taylor one. I love, love, love that story.

Love your loving mold! I didn’t care for how whipped creamy this was, so after unmolding it and trying it, I turned it in to ice cream. I also didn’t do fruit–I used hazelnuts and Nutella!

Wow, such a nice dessert…love the blueberries in it and the molding is very cute.

Your blanc manger looks wonderful. Love the mold and love that you used blueberries.

I have been wanting to make this ever since I read Dories book. I dont remember it from Little Women but wow I am glad you had your chance. It looks beautiful and creamy.

That’s so pretty–I love the mold you used. And thank you so much for the Little Women reference. I knew that I had read about “blancmange” before, but couldn’t figure out where!
