Days 101 & 102
My last two days of pastry school. Sniff, sniff. It makes me so sad! Well, the last two days of normal class. This week we have master demo where one of our instructors demos recipes for our class all days. On Tuesday we prep for our exams, and then Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday we have exams.
I’m not sure how next week (our last week) will go. I think we’re prepping for the buffet for graduation, and cleaning.
On Thursday we made these delicious little coconut macaroons. They were so good!
We also finally sliced the opera cake. It was also delicious!
Mini almond tarts made with almond cream, pear, and almonds.
Blueberry tarts with candied lemon peel.
Chocolate diamands. I didn’t really like these – they were too dry. They’re chocolate shortbread cookies rolled in turbinado sugar.
These Scottish scones were delicious. We used Earl Gray infused-raisins in them.
Perhaps we should have placed them on a larger baking sheet though.
So that was two weeks of petit fours class. I wouldn’t say it was my favorite two weeks of class, but I definitely enjoyed it.
