Professional Bakery Course – Photos here!
As promised, here are the photos of the cakes we have created over the week – feast for your eyes, and for my mouth too! Yumm … actually I brought home so many cakes, I really have to share with friends and neighbours, otherwise I might gain a few kgs from this class alone!
This is the Claire Fontaine – my favourite as at now. Isn’t it simply beautiful? And so absolutely inviting? It tasted so good even before I bite into it! The richness of the pastry cream is perfectly balanced with the refreshing fragrance of poached orange.
This is really addictive – very rich chocolate buttercream sandwiched between layers of coffee sponge. The texture is unique too – sink your teeth into the crispy dacquoise layer, followed by the smooth velvety chocolate buttercream and soft coffee sponge, with the occasional bursts of chocolate pearls
Ha ha .. please pardon the angry birds. When I brought the cakes home that night, my daughter quickly pointed that the birds looked cross eyed! Kids do have such an eye for details!
Here’s another fruity one with contrasting texture all within the same mouthful. Chunks of crunchy apples, crispy crumb topping with rich cream flavoured with vanilla pod.
Simply put – if you like bananas and chocolate – you will love this!
A French inspired cake for the chocoholic … I love the shiny finish …
And finally, a Disney-themed one for the child in us ..
