Yum! Part Deux
by Willy Wonka (newly annointed guest blogger)

Today was a whirlwind of activity. We made chiffon cake, genoise, angel food cake, japanoise, and puff pastry. (The angel food cake and japanoise are pictured.) The japanoise is a hazelnut meringue which can be utilized as a layer of cake itself or how we will be using it, as a filling it will be chocolate cake, layer of japanoise, layer of frosting, cake, japanoise, frosting, etc. etc. The picture is excess japanoise that we made into small snack size discs...they were also trying out the new ice cream machines at the school, so the suggestion was made to crumble pieces of japanoise as a crunchy topping on the ice cream.

Today was also useful for learning that the practice of law does not prepare one for standing on their feet for 8 hours straight and baking all day. Sore, sore legs and a very tight back. And no...there are not real angels in Angel Food cake...that would be Angel Meal cake. Based on the ingredients angels apparently eat sugar and egg whites. Sort of like, Atkin's-obsessed heroin-addict super-models.

I will probably be bringing some of my classwork to feed the ooda-loopas of Nu, Nu & Nu LLP tomorrow since I have to come in for a meeting. My classmates did not quite understand why I had to go home and do a couple of hours of work e-mail or why I might have to swing by the office...they all thought I was on "vacation." I was kind and didn't not laugh at their naiveté to our lawyerly ways.
