Hello :D!

Woah! I can’t believe it’s already halfway through the course, we’re at lesson 10 already :D.

Dacquoise cake with marzipan rose ( πŸ˜› first rose I ever made)

Although it’s getting more intense and challenging, I am learning new things about my physical strength. HAHA… everything at school is done BY HAND! Literally in this picture above, each class member had to whip up 5 egg whites to make the meringue sponges and 7 egg yolks with HOT cooked sugar and cold butter to make the beautiful praline buttercream.

Intense but FUN :D.

Here I must thank the people who have been praying for my wrist and encouraging me to keep positive. I was tentative at the beginning, because I felt a bit of aching pain after the first two lessons of making pastry dough and was afraid of my wrist would hurt more or worse re-injure myself. But it has been going very well, everyday my wrist has gotten stronger and I believe it’s 100% now and I’m no longer afraid πŸ˜€ THANK YOU!

The school timetable is pretty intense, but we’ve been lucky to be given 2 LONG weekends.

A classmate and I decided to take advantage of this long weekend to see a museum and patisserie hop. (:P haha, I know I am still able to eat pastries even though surrounded by it all day long at school.)
