Today was my first Planet Cake workshop, to say l was excited would be an understatement. I felt like a little kid that couldn't sleep because it was going to be Christmas the next day. I even had a night mare and woke up in the middle of the night thinking that l hadn't baked a cake to bring to class.
We had ten people in our Class with Jessica (she is holding the cake in the below picture) as our teacher and Fran (bottom centre) our facilitator, Jessica is amazing and at the ripe old age of 2o something is a fully qualified chef, pastry chef, chocolatier and guru cake decorator. And Fran is equally talented and incredibly funny! You can see some of her woke here http://www.flickr.com/photos/franjmc/3921809359/ .
The class was very full on, I think l learnt more in the past six hours, then l did doing the previous 8 week cake course. We were taught so many "cool tricks", but it will be a long time before l perfect Planet Cakes sharp edges.
Tomorrow we will do a two tier square cake, stay tuned for part 2.
