Have Your Cake & Eat It Too
It’s been all sugar flowers and wedding cakes the past few weeks. Hours and hours…and hours, of forming thin paste into delicate petals, covering cakes and decorating them as though they might one day feed a happy couple and their party guests.
It may come as a surprise to my family, because it comes as a surprise to me, but I seem to have a lot of patience. I know…I drive too fast, I talk too fast, I jump from subject to subject like they’re all on fire but I can sit in front of a cake for 12 hours with a pair of tweezers and a .0 piping tip and patiently bring it to life. I love it.
That said, whether or not I will choose to do this as a career is debatable. It seems I’ve fallen for every aspect of the baking and pastry industry and we still have our chocolate class coming up. The tough part will be choosing which of these areas I’ll attempt to master first.
In the meantime, I’ll enjoy the peep show for each of these specialties and try not to lick my fingers. Licking your fingers is frowned upon.
