today was day two of my three-day breads, breakfast pastries, and petits fours exam.
yesterday, i turned in an ok lemon pound cake. it was baked well, but apparently it was dense - a sign of over working the batter. i find this amazing, since i mixed that one by hand. getting eggs to the ribbon stage by hand will make you break a sweat.
these are photos of what i turned in today.
beer bread - turned out fine, could've had a more random crumb.
macarons with raspberry filling. these are some of the best macarons i've made so far. good timing on my part.
a loaf of brioche. this turned out damn near perfect.
and brioche with a bee sting topping, which is basically butter, honey, and almonds. these also turned out well.Posted by donna at February 21, 2008 04:35 PM
