Disneyland debuted the new Red Rose Taverne a few weeks ago for the new live action movie, Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. The new restaurant overlay was expectedly a huge hit and I heard people waited in line for hours to try the grey stuff. I unfortunately haven’t had to chance to visit yet so I’ve decided to recreate the most popular item on the menu, Grey Stuff Gateau.
The Grey Stuff Gateau is composed of a red velvet cake and raspberry center with white chocolate Oreo cookie mousse pipped on the outside. This incredible dessert is served all on top a buttery and crispy shortbread on the bottom. I didn’t think this dessert was very impressive but it honestly is amazing. The light mousse on the outside compliments the sweet yet tart center and the shortbread adds a much needed crunch. It may seem like a lot of components but I highly suggest making it for you and any Beauty and the Beast fans in your life.
This will last 2-3 days in the refrigerator, covered. The shortbread on the bottom will soften a bit, however. The recipe for red velvet cake provided below is from NYT Cooking.
