@Bubu82: When I saw them I smiled, so yes, I would be incredibly happy! And they sounds/look SOOO GOOD! Girl you gotta UPS me some, lol. You have a gift! Good luck with the audition!

(I also like the redo of #2 better)

Based on the visual of the plates alone, one looks great. Your second re-do I am not a fan. It doesn’t look as refined as the first, and visually the sauce is little awkward.

I don’t think having the sauce under/next to the tart is bad, pehaps instead of the way you had the sauce in plate 1 (w/ no border) add a circle border to it (so that the sauce is contained and stays in a circular shape,) it will almost look like a target w/ the tart as the bullseye.

I love the design of #2 redo.  I would suggest losing the blood orange supremes.  The thin juice from the oranges may create competing textures against the really heavy ganache of the tart (I think it’s dark choc. ganache.  Correct me if I’m wrong).  How about brulee-ing some whole filberts and pop them in the supremes place?  Definitely keep the reduced sauce.  It’s a gorgeous color contrast, and is a great compliment to the chocolate.

Good luck with the “audition”!! Laughing

Love #1! I think the #2 redo is putting the sauce on display, rather than the dessert itself. It depends where you want the eye to jump to first. Could you put the sauce in a little dish so you can just drizzle it on yourself? Mmmm. They look delicious!

both, but #2 is overdone, and a getting just the right amount of salt in #1 is a skill.

#1 is more show-off worthy. both look scruptious!

NO. 1 looks soooooooo good!

I’m not a huge fan of the bordered sauce. Could you lattice it on the plate and then put the tart on? I just think the way it is looks awkward. But would I order it? Heck yes.

I would order both of them, they look amazing! I am a little torn between the 1st and the redesign though – I think I like it better without the border!

I would eat the first one.  I would love the second one if you could get rid of the hazelnut.  I don’t care for hazelnut.

@In the media: Agree. Bordered sauce is sad. Cause sauce is good.

@Bubu82: I love the look of the first one, very cheery and yes looks like coral.  I would recommend maybe adding a second color for presentation and dimension.

For the second one, again looks very delicious.  My concern with that one is the blood orange sauce, not for taste (chocolate and orange are heaven in my opinion) but for lasting affect.  It seems that the orange sauce might produce a bit of sogginess to your tart crust if not served immediately.  I love the coloring and the name personally, it adds a bit of sexiness I think.

Just added; I just saw your third picture. Gorgeous!! and perfectly fixes what I was trying to say, haha.  It also gives a touch of character.

Good luck on your interview!!

@Bubu82:Maybe try to do a little design with less sauce for the second one. They both look impressive.
