London - Day 3

I am now part of the London commute!

Today was pretty exhausting! We made 3 different kinds of cakes today! 3!! Fruit cake, carrot cake and chocolate. We also did sugar syrup and chocolate ganache. Everyone in the class is really awesome! Peggy is super cute and I wanted to cry when I met her :P C'mon, she's like a rock star of cakes! Like a big clumsy Canadian I wanted to give her a big hug, but then she did that kiss on both cheeks thing, lol - so Euro!

We did a little meet and greet in the morning, where we also had breakfast! Coffee, croissants, and jam, all made at the bakery! Have I mentioned that people eat a lot of croissants here? Cause they do. If you're gluten free you don't stand a chance in London...

Once we got our workbooks we headed to the studio...

Lots of cakes on display and a store full of goodies!

Our workstations. Trust me, it doesn't stay this tidy for long...

We learned the old school way of lining a cake pan! I like this method. It doesn't cost a lot and makes me feel like I know what I'm doing!

Don't I look all pro and stuff?!
At the end of the day we were all exhausted and I just wanted to go back to my bed and sleep. I don't think there will be any sightseeing tonight!
