Last night was my practicum final for my Pastry class. I had to bake a cake and decorate it. We had pretty strict guidelines, (i.e. we had to write "Happy Birthday _______" in chocolate on the top) and here's what I turned out:
Too bad it's a nasty genoise and chocolate mousse inside; it looks so pretty on the outside. My teacher said he expected more from me, but I like the simplicity and clean lines. I've never been one for a lot of flowers and frou-frou stuff on my cakes. That's why I like rolled fondant so much. But that's another class.
The Socks That Rock continue, and while the fabric might be a bit thick, they're comfortable when I try them on.And there is just a wee bit of flashing or pooling, which is easily ignored. I didn't even notice it until I took this picture.
