School and Exam

School starts tomorrow.  Written exam, next Thursday.  Practical exam, next next Thursday.

Did that make your palms as sweaty as mine?!


I was given today off to test some things out in the bakery and to study.  Thank God.  I really needed that.  I made my cake once again, but this time I didn't use the real flowers and made a chocolate decoration that looks like a lattice.

It actually looks a lot more modern, and better than the flowers did.  I loved the idea of the flowers, but I guess I'll have to keep that idea in the back of my head for a later date!

Also, remember the raspberries on the cake?  As it turns out, they will leak red into the cream.  To be on the safe side, I won't be using them and will have to use strawberries.  Which also means that I can't use the raspberry cream inside the cake anymore.  No prob.  The cake is now strawberry-lemon.  The color of the strawberries looks great with the yellow from the lemon-fruchtspiegel on top, and let's face it... who doesn't like strawberry-lemonade?  I think the flavors will work well for the springtime.

And as for the written exam next week... Well, it gives me chest pain and makes my hands all clammy.  I know the material... I have a good grasp on the lessons and what we need to know for the test... the problem?  In my head, I know the material in my crazy German-English language.  That won't fly when it comes time to write it on paper.  No one can understand the combination of words that are shoved around in my brain at the moment.  My issue is trying to sort it all out and find a way to be able to coherently get this information out of my brain and onto paper.  

That's my stress for the moment...

Oh and by the way, this post is doing a really great job of helping my procrastinate... Thanks!!!
