Bailey's Chocolate Pie

Tonight my cousin Marc and his girlfriend Evita are coming over for dinner. I made the menu this afternoon. I was thinking of doing something Italian but Marc was in the mood for something Asian. So the menu goes like this... Soup is clear soup with tofu, vermicelli noodles and cilantro, roasted chicken curry with lychees, garlic chili crabs and spicy kangkong. I also made pandan juice to match my menu. For dessert, I'm making them try my Bailey's Chocolate Pie. It's a whipped dark chocolate ganache spiked with Bailey's liquor on an Oreo crumb crust and decorated with a silky mocha flavored whipped cream. It was an experiment made in the commissary yesterday. I wasn't so happy about the Irish Cream Cake I made a few weeks ago. So, this is going to be my last minute Father's Day Cake to be out on display in the stores beginning Friday. I still don't know how much it will cost but I'll find find that out tomorrow. More stories to come tomorrow. My guests are arriving soon.
