I’m done! Well not technically, because I have to complete an online course before I get my diploma, but let’s just ignore that fact and pretend I’m done with school!
This last quarter was definitely the most fun. My favorite class by far was the Display Cakes class. Here is a collage of all the cakes I made. Each week we had to make a cake starting with 1-tier, then 2-tier, then 3-tier, and finally we made a 6-tier cake in groups of three.
I can feel that this is the season for baking for me. I have more free time, and I love autumn produce. I’m trying to talk John into going apple picking sometime soon. Have y’all ever done that? I hear that there are usually donuts involved with apple picking.
I ‘ve already made a couple things I want to share with you and I would love to remake some of my favorite recipes from school (eclairs, chocolate bread, tiramisu, and truffles, to name a few).
Hope everyone is having a great week and enjoying football season!
This is becoming a problem. Look at this mountain of bread I’m bringing home every week from baking and pastry class! It all tastes amazing and I’m having a blast making it, but John and I need help eating it.
I mean, these danishes are delicious, but a healthy breakfast they are not.
Cinnamon Raisin Brioche with more butter on top? Yes please. Carb crash in an hour? No thank you.
This week we made baguettes, brioche, danishes, jalapeño corn muffins and soft dinner rolls. Last week we made zucchini bread, morning glory muffins, sour cream muffins, foccacia, biscuits and soft dinner rolls. I love all the techniques I am learning, and I love how much work it takes to produce something great. It feels really good to work with my hands and run around the fast paced kitchen trying to get everything done on time.
Stay tuned for some more recipes! I hope to have a bread pudding or a bread crumb cake posted soon. If anyone has any thoughts on how to use up some leftover bread I would be grateful.
