Aux Delices Napoleon Pastry

Once again Sunday rolls around and we have another dessert for our random meal. We have for today a Napoleon pasty. This was an interesting pastry as it was both crispy and soft at the same time. You bite into a layer of puffy crispy pastry and then you hit a rich layer of cream and then you hit another layer of crispy and so on. The Napoleon pasty crumbles in your mouth while the sweet rich cream engulfs the pastry and becomes one Delicious blend. Today's picture was an experiment as i shot the pastry with a zoom lens handheld. It helped melt the background away.
Found at Aux Delices in Pasadena, CA.
