Today was a free day. Basically, we're allowed to do anything we want. It's mostly a day to make up anything we've messed up, missed because of absence, or just to redo because you didn't like it. Luckily, I didn't mess up anything this section so my free day really was a free day. So much, in fact, I probably could have not come in today, but then I wouldn't get points for the day even though I didn't miss a lecture or demo. Instead of sleeping in, I decided to redo a recipe from a previous section; my personal favorite, the Florentina Surprise. I've mentioned it before, but I didn't get a good picture, so finally here's my chance.
Here I give you the Florentina Surprise. Shortdough cookie topped with a hazelnut flavored buttercream (I finally succeeded!!!), with a secret filling of rum spiked ganache, coated with coating chocolate, then topped with a florentina cookie. MMMmmm mmmmmm goodness.
Above is my fun rendition of the dessert (cookie). Ok so I had one more bottom and no more top florentina cookie so I too a bunch of scrap florentina cookies and put it on top and called it ''rustic.'' LOL It still looks great tho.
Disclaimer: THIS IS NOT MY CREATION. This beauty belongs to a fellow student, Stacy. No matter how much people love my art I call pastries, I can still learn a lot from Stacy. I'm not even sure what to call it, but wow is it nice. I still forget to break out the camera and take pictures of everyones' pieces. Maybe next time I'll be faster with the camera and get pics of everything.
