Yum! Part Trois
by Willy Wonka (tired guest blogger)

Busy little worker bees today, 10 hours of baking and making of cakes…it was almost like being at Nu, Nu & Nu LLP. Except at the law firm we don’t get to eat our memos. [Speak for yourself. -Nonny Nu, Chief Editor] Today was pulling together all the cakes we’d been working on previously in the week. So I now have three cakes sitting in the refrigerator, waiting for a good home. Today was the day to learn how to assemble the cakes…and apparently getting your cake level and split evenly is a big, big, big deal. Apparently, I am not good at this. (An interesting note, our instructor told us that when he was being trained they had to be able to split a cake, fill it, ice it, and decorate it in under 7 minutes or they failed).

So…the pictured cakes are: a raspberry/lemon curd genoise cake with whipped cream icing,

a variation on a black forest cake (chocolate chiffon cake with cherry mousse icing),

and a chocolate hazelnut cake with praline buttercream frosting and a layer of japanoise (see day two).

I guess that is about it, probably much more to say but I’m tired. [So, what's new? -Nonny Nu]

Oh…and for those who were wondering about the day three update*, in brief I learned the two axioms of making puff pastry:

1) With the proper equipment it is possible to make puff pastry at home.

2) No one has the proper equipment.

*Note from Editor: This is the day that Willy Wonka didn't blog.
