Today was the Patisserie Exam for this term (Intermediate) and I drew a number to have to make the Fraisier. The other possibilities were the Opera and Sabrina cakes.
We had 2 ½ hours to make the cake from scratch, including the marzipan rose. I must say that this is the cake I was hoping to make, rather than the other options, so I was very pleased to draw this.
It went pretty well and I finished with about 15 minutes to spare and hadn’t had to rush myself.
Here is the finished cake.
Next exams are the written patisserie and cuisine exams on Wednesday.
