Class Room Adventures......

  
As you all know, This week marked the beginning of my adventure in the Baking Program at College. It is extremely enjoyable. Everyday consists of new recipes and methods. This quarter we are learning about cake balancing, cake mixing methods, and cake decorating. Here are some pictures of school and desserts, me and my fellow students made today.

My fellow class mate Stephanie and her apple dumpling!


Chocolate peanut butter mousse cup

Pastry cream tart covered with fresh strawberries.
Raspberry Streusel Muffins.

Black Berry streusel cake.

Upside down Ginger apple cake with a amaretto caramel sauce.
Sweet Potato Cupcakes with a maple butter cream and peanut brittle on top.

Part of our "class room".

That is very exciting. I would have a major problem in that class cause I would want to eat everything!! Looks delicious.

I know Kaylee... But you get so busy baking you don't have time to be tempted! But, we do have a "sampling" time at the end of the day. This is a time to comment on what you liked and thought about everyone's desserts.

Marie- your desserts look scrumptious! I'd have to speak up in favor of the Ginger Upsidedown Cake with Amaretto Carmel Sauce and the Raspberry Streusel muffins, though! Oh, boy. I feel 50lbs. heavier already! Your 'classroom' dessert pictures make a person real hungry (especially if said person has been *trying* to eat healthy all week long). Ouch. There goes that! Thank you for sharing, Marie!
