Our Chocolate fondant class was attended by 10 wonderful, lovely and talented ladies namely Sabrina, Hamidah, Michelle, Azian, Jane(fr Butterworth), Nor Hayati, Zaiton (both of them frm BM), Shuhada, Ain and Annum (3 of them frm Kulim).

In this class they were given tips on how to bake a cake without cracks or domes. Then we moved on to make fondant and my students were amazed at how easy it was to make their own fondant.Then they were taught to make our best chocolate fondant and i also introduced to them the various types of chocolate available in the market. All of them did not like the cheap coloured chocolate (frm Indonesia)which actually is not chocolate but just sugar, flour, palm fat and tons of artificial colourings. They also learned to make white and dark chocolate roses, rosebuds, calla lilies, leaves and tendrils. Techniques like scrolls, embossing, crimping, lace and frills were also taught. A hands-on technique on dusting with gold and disco dust were also taught.

All my students fell in love with their cake creations and did not want to cut their cakes. They also asked me to order The Wedding Cake, A Dessign Source magazine for them and this morning i've placed orders for the magazines from ICCA.

Thank you ladies, i had much fun with all of you and to Michelle, sorry for ending the class around 7.30pm. She had to rush home for dinner with her 3 young charming boys who were enjoying eating the chocolate fondant.To Sabrina, a big thank you for showing us how to make lovely rosebuds. To Zaiton, Shuhada, Ain and Annum, Nor Hayati and Jane, thank you for coming from BM & Kulim. Last but not least thank you to Azian and Hamidah for attending our class again.

A long hiatus in my classes and blog updates was unavoidable due to some personel commitments and not because of procrastination. Nevertheless, my classes went on as usual and my latest class was our Assorted Tart class. I really enjoyed teaching this class because all the students showed so much enthusiasm and enjoyed making the tarts. I'm sorry to turn down some students as this class was already full. To those who have registered, please bear with me and we'll try to conduct another class soon.

Note: this is an email fr my student, Azimah who attended our tart class.Thank you for your kind words, Azimah. i really wish for you every success in all your baking endeavour.
