That'll be a Swiss Roll thank you very much. Well last Saturday was my last class for Baking Arts 1. There are 2 more classes to go, but I’ve got other commitments, so last Saturday was my last class. We made Swiss rolls and we had the option of covering them with icing sugar or covering them with whipped topping.
Chocolate cake, kirsch, cherry filling, maraschino cherries and whipped topping – It could only be one thing – Black Forest Cake! We’re heading into the home stretch of the course now, with only three more classes to go. Due to a couple of conflicts, next week will be my last class. I’m already looking ahead though for what I want to take next. This was the class that I was dreading and my worst fears came true somewhat.
I make every single recipe that I post on this site, but I’m wondering if I’m amongst the few that do. Over the last couple of months, I’ve tried several recipes posted by a couple of bloggers, and sometimes the recipes, and pictures of the output don’t match. So it got me wondering how many bloggers actually make the recipes that they post?
A funny thing happened in class today. I discovered that know how to make Choux pastry, but I didn’t know it was Choux pastry. When chef started to demo the recipe I quickly realized that the base of this infamous Choux pastry was the same base that we Trini’s use for an hor d'oeuver called "Puffs". Don’t ask me why we call it that but we just do.
