Ispahan was first created by a world famous French pastry chef Pierre Herme. He was the one who first put the three ingredients, raspberry, lychee, and rose together in a macaron. It wasn't famous the first time he created it but now, it is one of his most best selling pastry.
I tried to recreate the masterpiece in the form of a cake. The cake consists of two layers of vanilla sponge cake, moistened with raspberry and lychee simple syrup , and filled with subtle yet fragrant rose mousse. Fresh raspberries and lychees are also added in the middle of the mousse.
