Today, Advanced Cakes and Classical Tortes class was all about pies and ice creams! You aren't going to believe all the different pies/tarts we made as a class. There were...
Raspberry Lemon Meringue
Phyllo Fresh Fruit
Then on top of that we made these ice creams...
Fresh Mint (I made this one and it was so refreshing!)
Spiced (w/Cinnamon and Star Anise)
Ready for some pictures?
We made large pies...
And mini pies...
This is a fresh fruit tart with a chocolate crust, filled with pastry cream and chantilly cream, then garnished with fresh fruit and glazed to give it a beautiful glossy finish.
This is a beautiful lemon meringue pie. (I have decided that I "need" to add blow torch to my Christmas list this year. Browning these meringues was just way too fun!)
This is one of my faves and one that I was able to work on from start to finish during class - Key Lime Pie!
This is the Pear Frangipane with its pear slices so strategically placed. Almost too pretty to eat. (Notice how I said, "almost".)
Today was a great day! Filled with lots of good eating!
