Scones to wish me luck…

April 15, 2010

Tomorrow is the first of my two patisserie exam practicals. *Breathe in, breathe out* I’m actually really looking forward to it! Nervous excitement is the emotion of the day. I have 4 hours to make vanilla cupcakes with italian meringue icing, cheese & herb muffins, scones, and chocolate eclairs with pastry cream and chocolate ganache. Not so bad actually, especially since I get to take it all home with me :) I’m the lucky one since I’m the only pastry chef in our class, the others are studying it but working as chef’s in hot kitchens. The only thing on the list that I hadn’t made yet was scones. Since I’ve never liked them. (until today that is, this seems to keep happening to me:) And so when I got off early from work today I took the opportunity to whip up a batch. And they were truly amazing. The smell, the colour, the steam as I broke one open straight from the oven, and then of course the texture as it just seemed to melt in my mouth. Hmmm…

Ok I’m back. I can’t post the recipe this time, but there will definately be a next time for scones and I… definately! Here are some of the photos as I was going along. My new camera is my baby, it is amazing, I love it and I all but sleep next to it. So from me and Sony Alpha 330…

Wish me luck! :)
