Last lesson of the Year

Soo today was the last learning lesson before practicals and final exams in my Bakeshop lab. We covered out Chocolate cakes with butter cream (not the French kind!!!!!!) and then rolled colored fondant. Mine came out pretty awesome.
I also learned how to make roses =D I'm excited

The one with the orange stripe went to Devon =D because she didn't come to class today lol

Well anyways, i had my nutrition practical exam, on Wednesday of last week, i made garlic parsley roasted pork loin with roasted sweet potatoes, carrots, leeks, and chef potatoes. with a side of pasta tossed with a sherry cream sauce. then for my appetizer i made spicy panko crusted zucchini coins with a lime brown sugar dipping sauce. the coins were oven fried. I got a 8.9 on my entrĂ©e and an 8.8 on my appetizer. Sadly i dont have pictures but i'll take pictures tomorrow for you guys!

I think im going to make a post with just photos of all the things ive done this year.. sound good you guys?.

Soo last weekend was hectitc... Rich's dog Amber got sick.. still is and were not sure she'll make it last i know.. so we went to see her, shes a good ol girl.  Shes a sweetheart.

But other than that its pretty fun =D i love seeing him happy and excited to be on his own, soon hopefully he'll be in his own place

French Butter Cream and an update =)

Sooo today we worked with French butter cream..... its supposed to taste UH-MAZING!... but..


Yeah it melts wayyyy to quickly... even after you spend like 20 minutes cooling and thickening it over an ice bath... screw you French butter cream and your sugar syrup crap!

But anyways, we used them on out Hot milk and butter sponge ( I got to fill mine with ganache! of the chocolate variety ..yumm!)
we also used it on our Chiffon cakes.

Soo in other news, My dads 49th birthdays on Wednesday and I got him his ultimate movie, Unstoppable.  Gave it to him when he dropped me off this morning, I think it made up for us leaving late. It feels great to make him smile.

Also, we wend bridesmaid dress shopping Sunday with Erin, Jaimie, Christine and My Auntie Reenie. Got a stunning dress i think Thanks again Auntie for helping pay for it! <3! I wont show it until it gets closer, but that wont be until the 17th of December when Tinie gets married, but I don't know if I'll make it until then haha.

Richard's adjusting to the homeless life, hes getting on track with all of his lo income housing things, hes sore a lot though, but thats due to the walking, hes learning money management, and todays our 9 month anniversary! its a big thing for both of us, its his longest relationship, and same with mine. I'm so glad we found each other.

A Little late

So obviously I'm a little bit late starting this but what the hell, why not. Better late then never right?
Well let me tell you a little about myself, I'm currently 19 but turning 20 on the 27th of December. I'm presently in my 2nd semester of college doing what i love to do. Bake. I only have one more year before I graduate and then I'm out in the baking world!
   Anyways, there is a lot going on in my life right now and I think its time i write about it instead of keeping it all bottled up. Here is where I will share my struggles, my excitments, and my tears.

So with Cupcakes and love
