Tonite, Miss Betty ala EatMyCupcake and I were lucky enough to take a baking class where we got to roll and decorate Yule Logs aka Buche Noel...and watch how to easily make a red velvet roll cake and an ice cream cake.
The Yule Log portion thankfully took up 4/5 of the class, which is why we went in the first place. It was hands on and we made it REALLY hands on. As in finger-lickin-good hands-on!
Our logs were pretty darn cute if I do say so myself...and we had a fabulous time asking ridiculous questions of the instructor such as 'why do you use a mix' and 'what makes this cake moist' (answer...the POWDERED EGGS...yes you read that one right).
On a sappy note...I am so happy that Betty and I connected during the forlorn 'first and last' South Bay Cupcake Meetup so many months ago. It is a ton of fun to have a local baker pal who you also have a lot in common with, other than just baking. Plus our hubs actually like each other too. LUVSYA Betty and Papa Bear! HOHOHO.
