The Heart and Soul of my Baking Journey coming alive

Intro to Traditional French Pastries

This was meant to be the first class (before the gateaux) but then it was full in August, so they put me in for the October one. Here are the pics from my very very hard work in trying to learn and produce yummy french pastries this weekend. Note that all pastries seen below have been made from scratch, hopefully.. will never have to buy frozen ones again!

1. CroissantPlain, Apricot/Pear/Strawberry Danish, Raisin Scroll (also known as Escargot.. cos it looks like a snail) and Almond Croissant.
