Cakes, Cakes and more cakes

So after spending my fall trimester at home doing my internship, I returned to school with a renewed passion. I love my craft and think of it as art, a scientific absolutely delicious roller coaster of a ride art.

My first lab of my sophomore year was Specialty Cakes, where we built tortes, wedding cakes and worked with rolled fondant and gum paste. Everything in this class was built on the introductory class, so not many demos to report. Here are some pictures of my products.

Look forward to more cakes....only this time, fancy french ones (entremets and petit gateau) much more modern (and tastier!)
