It’s the first Tuesday that I don’t have a baking class.  It feels good not having to spend another Tuesday night downtown, but at the same time, no more goodies to eat the next day. 

So we made the strawberry shortcake for our last class. But I made it in a hurry to get home to do PDEng, the decoration was too ugly for pictures :(

Week 8 was Spritz Cookies – made with shortening. So it wasn’t very flavourful. And it was quite harding piping the cookies with the dough. I found that it’s much easier when you don’t load so much of the dough into the piping bag.

Then we made sponge sheets! The chef taught us how to fold in the flour with the egg mixture and cautioned us not to bang the cake pan with the sponge mixture on the table.

Along with the sponge sheet, we also made the sponge cake for the fruit flans. I tried making the flan again last weekend, but failed because I didn’t cook the cornstarch through :( The custard wasn’t set and tasted very starchy (thanks to Mike who pointed out haha)
