Well, since my last post much has changed and much has stayed the same. I am still making cakes, but in a different capacity and style. Not many crazy cool custom ones but I have gotten a lot faster at baking, stacking, frosting and decorating cakes. Have developed a new found love of laminated doughs... more specifically croissant. It amazes me every time I have one. As Chad Robertson of Tartine says, "A well made croissant will give one pause, a moment to reflect on the petit engineering marvel set before you."I can only wish to be so eloquent ;)
