Salvatore Settepani’s beautiful showpiece was all about clean lines and elegant hand sculpting. His interpretation of the winner’s floral wreath and the Olympic rings created a festive contrast. This stunning piece, along with his exceedingly tasty Winter Breeze Cake(a white chocolate mousse cream with a lime cream, blood orange center, almond dacquoise, craqueline finished with a caramel glaze.-close) and Winter Wonder bon-bons (a Kalamansi lime ganache, with a coffee cardamon ganache, finished with a chocolate couverture-close) earned Salvatore Settepani the silver medal for this year’s 21st Annual US Pastry Competition, hosted by Paris Gourmet. Great work Salvatore!
