The End of Cake Week

So Friday concluded cake week with cupcakes and Genoise cake.
At this point I can't wait for something besides sugar. I know that sounds weird coming from a person working towards becoming a pastry chef but at this point I haven't been eating any of the sugary goodness I have been making because my body can't handle any more sugar.

Give me a loaf of bread for goodness sakes.
Above is my own concoction called Citrus Cupcakes, yellow cupcakes made with orange and lemon peel then a butter cream frosting made with orange juice.
On top we have some candied orange pieces.

Next we have a Genoise cake (sponge cake) with mint chocolate chip flavored butter cream frosting and coated in chocolate sprinkles.
I only wish smell-a-vision was possible!
So overall it was a good week with lots of sweets and a good grade on my test!
Next week is the last week of this class before six weeks of bread class.
It's amazing how time flies when you are having fun.
