It’s been an awfully long time since I wrote anything on my blog, and that’s mainly to do with the fact that I’m now living and working in Dublin at a cake shop! It also might partially be due to laziness, but mostly it’s just because I’ve been crazy busy. Anyway, I thought I’d fo a write up about some of the things I’ve learnt at my internship so far, so here goes…
In the first few weeks I learnt how to make large quantities of buttercream, how to make hydrangeas and roses out of fondant, how to cover cakes, how to pipe in the Russian bride style, how to make figures (including bears and people), how to prepare cake tins for baking, how to make certain cake recipes, how to cut up cakes for taste testings, how to use fondant moulds, how to place Birthday messages on cake boards, how to cover cake boards, etc.
I will attach some photos of these now:
Later as I gained more experience I got to make two toned roses, place roses on the cake and make more objects out of fondant.
I still have one more month of my internship and can’t wait to learn even more!
