pattern looks nice

Hi! I’m a new SNS art/fic/???/… blog! An amateur artist (as you can tell from the pic above lol) and cringe-worthy fanfic writer(i will NOT expose my loser AO3′s identity). I’m here to give these two idiots and the fandom as much love as my cold heart can.  ❤️

How to make Tiramisu.

The first thing to do is to make the coffee soaking syrup. I made a strong coffee, approximately 150ml worth, and added 30g sugar. Place in a fridge and once cooled, I added 50ml disaronno, however this is optional. 

To make the marscapone cream, there are three stages. 

First, whisk 200g double cream until firm peaks. Set aside. 

Make the Sabayon. Sabayon is basically like an Italian meringue made with egg yolk. Place 3 egg yolk in a mixer with a whisk attachment. In a pan, bring to the boil 60g sugar and 40ml water. At this stage, start whisking the yolks. Once the liquid has been boiling for approximately 5 minutes, (it should’ve reduced by almost half) pour this into the whisking yolk by dribbling it down the inside of the bowl. It is important that the liquid does not hit the moving whisk- since it will splash everywhere and potentially make sugar nests! Allow the mixture to whisk until it forms a ribbon like consistency. (See third photo.)

The second stage is to combine the sabayon and mascarpone. In a separate bowl, weigh 200g mascarpone. Beat this with a rubber spatula to make smooth. To this, add roughly 1/3 of the sabayon and beat with the spatula until fully incorporated. Once smooth, add the remaining sabayon.  

Lastly, fold in the whisked double cream in two halves. It is important not to fold in all the double cream in one go- as it will lose the aeration. (See fourth photo for finished cream.)

To build the tiramisu, I cut out the sponge with a round cutter which fit the individual moulds. Line the base with the sponge and using a pastry brush, I soaked the sponges with the coffee syrup. I then piped a layer of the mascarpone cream, followed by another layer of soaked sponge. The second layer of mascarpone cream is the top, so I decided to pipe a pattern- it usually looks rather nice once the cocoa powder is dusted on. 

Place in the fridge for at least an hour, and this can be enjoyed on the day, or even the day after.

hello!! sorry to bother you but I saw that post with the mob psycho pattern you made and was wondering if you could give me a quick rundown of how that works on photoshop? like i figured out how to do that clipping thing with the lil arrow down but i'm not sure how you made the pattern look so nice and not just black and white?

Oh! For the colored layers, you can set them on either Overlay, Soft Light, or Hard Light (which you can find in the blending modes tab on the layer window) to get different effects! I recommend experimenting to see which one you like best.

for the gradient map, which you can find in the adjustments window, this is my gradient set up (i put it on reverse since i thought it looked better)

And for curves, which is also found in the adjustment window, i have it set up like this. Curves can really manipulate the tones of your piece, so it can make the hologram look more dull or shiny depending on what you do. I use this all the time in my drawings haha

hope this helps!
