Advanced Patisserie Final

I was terrified of this final. We not only had to assemble and decorate a cake, but also do a plated dessert. I got a 95 which I was really excited about! (The cake had a few issues)

I made Madeleines, a caramelized poach pear, and a raspberry macaroon with creme brule filling. This part was perfect!

This is the cake I made for my final. It looks like flowers threw up on the cake, but chef wanted a lot of flowers. The piping needs a lot of work too.

Over all I learned so much in this class and I’m really excited by my progress!

Vanilla and Raspberry Wedding Cake

This is my first rolled fondant cake! For it being my first I’m really proud! We also made a lot of gum paste flowers.

The cake itself wasn’t that good. It was just a plain old boring cake. We were supposed to do a cascade of flowers, but I didn’t make near enough for that.

This is the one Shannon made. She went a little bold with the colors. She really likes to do things differently.

This is one Mariea made. Hers is perfect as always. I love the lilies on her cake.
