Today we got the results of our patisserie exam from chef Christophe. It isn’t the final result for the term, just the result for making the Fraisier in the exam on Monday.
I got 87.75% and came top of my class! The only major criticism was my royal icing piping on the top of the cake. I hope my cuisine result is anywhere near as good.
Then we had a practical to decorate our fruit cakes. I covered the cake in marzipan and decided to colour my fondant icing blue with marbling to complement the yellow roses. I covered the cake and board, added a border around the sides of the cake, crimped the edges of the cake and marked the edge of the board and added ribbon around the board. I piped royal icing around the base of the cake, on the border and on the top then added the roses and leaves.
