Super duper número uno

It’s great being back in the kitchen and luckily they eased us into it with a bit of Christmas cheer! A traditional ‘frenchy’ Yule log took out days 1 and 2 this week. A lot of time was spent making all of our components and creating the little meringue mushrooms for the top. The Ocean gang were the lucky recipients scoffing the delightful little number just before 5 o’clock drinkies.

Saturday rolled around quite quickly after that with the Opera cake’s fairer cousin The Brasilia on our agenda. Think layers of jaconde, salted caramel buttercream and tasty nougatine, oh yeah!

Fab marks all around this week with a few snaps to mark the occasion.



Superior pastry – watch this space

Not quite a post of something I’ve made but something I am about to make. Apart from my doodles today in the pic attached.

History? No? A new blanket? No … Well yes I will do that again soon. My dreams come true? Well kinda! An announcement? Yes!

After many months of learning and baking baking baking I’m into my final semester to become a pastry chef. Le petite patissier to start with of course! It’s pretty exciting but sad too as I love going to school and it’s almost over. Sigh.

So to remind me of the good times when it’s all done and dusted The Doily Grind will document my Superior semester showcasing the things I managed to make. Watch out for chocolate and sugar sculptures!
