You are SO CLEVER!! This is excellent. I have a recipe for a thick chocolate mousse that would be great in these little puff pastry cups. Well done.

What a creative and festive dessert for the upcoming holidays. The word cornucopia means ~ overflowing, abundance ~ and this delectable treat has that in spades. Great idea! Thanks

These are easy to make because you know what you are doing. I would not have thought of that and would have agonized as how to do it. You make it seem so simple.
