I just remembered the joke one of the chef's made the other day 'They did tell you to buy your uniform at least 2 sizes larger so you could grow into it, didn't they?' This was met with considerable laughter but realistically speaking, it's more of a statement than a joke. The amount of sugar, butter, cream, milk and eggs I've seen this week has been astonishing! Perhaps it's been my upset stomach, ringing headache and occasional feverish state that I haven't really responded well to the products we've made this week and hence my slight aversion to the afore mentioned products. I really hope my stomach turns itself around next week so I can enjoy my sweets; it really sucks at the moment.
So just a slight correction to yesterday's post, we made 'Paris Brest' and not 'Paris Breast' as I would've typed. Essentially, just more choux puffs filled with a Hazelnut Praline Creme Patisserie. Funny enough Hazelnut Praline smells just like Nutella :P Anyway, I didn't take many photos; here's one of the chefs.
And to bring everyone some sad news, Palm Beach Cupcakes has officially closed for business. Sarah and Rick are going to concentrate on other parts of their business. My new funky, casual job is up in the air (they might have opportunities for me in other parts of their business but I've got to wait). There's also something else in the air which I will speak of soon. What a dismal week of sickness, everyone being sick and the death of Palm Beach Cupcakes.
