Cream Puffs, Bazaars, Brownie cookies, Fish, and ice cream? x0

Hello everyone!

Recaps, recaps! Haha photobucket has been mean to me the past few days and didn't want to upload pictures, but really I just forgot to take a lot of them, but I will bring us up to date with words! x0

So two Thursdays ago in baking class we made a ton of cream puffs for this event we were putting on. We made savory ones and sweet ones, but I'm just not really a fan of them either way. x0

Then on that Sunday we had a Holiday bazaar at the campus. Our culinary club had a table and I had to support them by buying, and trying to eat this giant moose cupcake!


It was a twinkie dipped in chocolate over a cupcake that was frosted. The ears were made of tootsie rolls, and the antlers were pipped chocolate (remember I did those a few weeks ago in Pastry Tube art? ^ _^ ) and the eyes were m&ms! So much sugar! x0

On Tuesday for Pastry Tube art we made chocolate butter cookies, and gingersnaps, again! We were supposed to make snickerdoodles but the chef didn't have a recipe, and didn't want to look for one, so we resorted to gingersnaps. I think they tasted better this time around though! The chocolate butter cookies were amazing too, they tasted like a warm, gooey brownie to me!: )

On Wednesday our main chef was sick so the next chef in line took his place to teach the class. We learned how to cook fish in different ways, grill shrimp, and saute and simmer broccoli!


Looks good huh? : P

Finally this past Thursday we made ice cream and ice cream sauces!! I made vanilla bean ice cream, and it was pretty amazing in my opinion! I also made dark chocolate sauce, but I didn't really like it because I had to put in orange extract, and I'm not a fan of orange and chocolate together. Other teams made pumpkin ice cream, and caramel ice cream and caramel, strawberry, and milk chocolate sauce. It was a tasty day!

I've also had some good Chinese food, sneaks of ice cream at Cold Stones, a pint of Ben and Jerry's, and some good coffee among many other things these past 12 days since I last blogged!

I will try and keep more up to date! I will, I will! : )


Lizzie! : )
