Pastry Class Weeks 1 and 2

This class moves FAST! I like fast…but wow, not only am I learning A LOT but the expectation is to do everything with absolute precision and SPEED! I love it, I just need a lot of practice.

So, week one of pastry class was piping skills practice. We whipped up some royal icing and just played with it, creating shells, shell borders, rosettes, lady fingers, S’s and mounds. Then in week 2, we used the skills that we learned to make cookies piped in all of the different shapes. Like this…



They turned out….not bad….they taste good but spread a bit too much. I know what I’d do differently next time and it was good practice. We also prepped some ice box cookies so that they will be ready for us to slice and bake next week.

    I’ve read a few good stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting.
    I wonder how much effort you put to create such a magnificent informative web site.
