But I can tell you that Peggy showed us some amazing demonstrations of icing cakes, and I learned a lot of technical things that will make me amazing in the future. I was pretty floored watching her smooth chocolate ganache to perfection, and I mean, it was perfect! A solid cylinder of chocolate cake. All it takes is a palette knife and practice.
So after making Victoria Sponge cakes we iced yesterday's cakes with our ganache and various buttercreams. Oh, and of course, we learned some leveling tips, which resulted in lots of leftover cake, which we were free to eat for lunch... or not...
See those covered bowls? That's all cake! Oh yeah, and something called fruit in the middle...
After class I decided to be a tourist and wander a bit.
I know it says look right, but I still automatically want to look the other way...
So I hopped on a bus, which, isn't really a good decision without sort of having an idea of where it goes. The bus I took went sort of back to where I came from then off to some neighbourhood by the Thames, but not a recognizable part of the Thames. It was Pimlico.
So after snapping this pic of boys playing
They don't call it a circus for nothing... (I would've had the perfect pic for this, cause there was actually a guy dressed as a clown standing outside, but I didn't take the pic - arg!)
I found a lovely little Indian restaurant, called Indian Brasserie, the people there were so wonderful!
And the food was really great, could've been a bit spicier, but still tasted awesome! Really, can you go wrong with butter chicken and naan bread? Probably not.
I know my peeps at RocketOwl are jealous riiiight now. ;)
After find a novelty shop which turned into this arcade mall...
I went to one of those big lame tourist shops and looked at lame tourist stuff:
And there were hats! Tons of hats!
And with that, I'm off to bed, another full day tomorrow ~
ON TO DAY 5
