Patisserie La Cigogne: Baking While You Sleep

Pastry chef Thierry Schmitt wakes up at the ungodly hour of 3 a.m. every Saturday and Sunday to do his baking for Patisserie La Cigogne (1626 Bayview Avenue). Entering the shop (much later), I make a beeline for the front pastry showcase to drool over the offerings of the day. The Paradise is described as "Orange flavoured Chocolate Mousse with Grand Marnier Creme Brulee filling, finished with sprayed Chocolate" ($4.35). 'Sprayed chocolate'? Clearly, I must investigate.
