Week 1: Cakes and Food Safety Hygiene

So we rocked up on the first day and had 8 hours of Introduction and Orientation and then a quick lunch break followed by our first theory class about OHS and food safety hygiene..

The next day it was Prac already in the kitchen and I was up at 6am and out of the door by 7am and then in my chef whites by 8am to start class.

The whole week, it was half theory and half prac and lots of assessments and assignments online to complete.

Prac was CAKES, we did:

  • Sponges (Traditional and Genoise)
  • Jam swiss rolls
  • Scones
  • Sweet muffins (choc banana and apricot blueberry)
  • Mudcake
  • Brownies
  • Light fruit cake – this one saving for our cake decorating class later on

Assessment was 12 x scones and mudcake decorated, and I passed the prac and theory!! yahoo!!


It’s Christmas Time..

So Nicky and I threw a party and we had such a great time.. For the party, I made my Sticky Date Scones, a Black Forest Choc Ripple Cake (for Jason’s bday) and also for the first time ever, Minced Fruit Tarts.. Here are the pics:


Me the busy bee..

Its been awhile.. here’s what I’ve been up to..

1. Helping LT and JL with their pre-wedding invitations.. I’m doing their bonbons too.. which will be in November.. soooo excited.. have to also think about how to decorate the white box which will contain the cupcake. They’ve chosen, lemon cupcakes with a lemon frosting and chocolate chip cupcakes with a strawberry frosting..

2. Made a tiramisu and chocolate hazelnut mousse for 2 different parties: one of which was a housewarming and the other was learning how to make pasta at a friend’s place.. of course my contribution was italian themed, the tiramisu.. my goodness, it took us ages to make pasta, I don’t think I’ll be trying that again any time soon..

3. New scone recipes.. here’s the first one, a sticky date and cinnamon scone.. turned out quite fragrant! Might need to eat with fresh cream or butter but certainly not jam, cos it might overtake the date flavour..


Malaysian inspired food!

So we were supposed to have a Malaysian-themed party cos it’s Merdeka on Monday 31st August.. threw some things together and here’s the Pandan Flavoured Nutty Scone, with Kaya instead of the usual Jam and Cream! woohoo! Oh and the other two pictures are my attempt at Prawn Sambal and Roti Jala (however, the stupid mould wouldn’t work so I had to make Roti Pancake.. haha!!)
