The Last Class For Our Pastry Chef Student

On Wednesday I attended a very special event, a Capstone. For the Pastry Chef students, it is the culmination of many months of classes, and hours of preparation to create their individual creations. Each one was on display, and each one is totally edible. I am sharing pictures of her project and some of her friend's projects.

This stained glass looking creation is made with different colors of spun sugar, which actually resembled an old glass stained window. The candle behind it, illuminated it beautifully. Fortunately for me, it now graces a corner of my kitchen.

This is one of the many desserts, created by the students, and served to each of the parents. This was a perfect, refreshing summer dessert.

Our daughter will be leaving for a 3 month externship, where she will spend time helping other pastry chefs, create desserts in a very nice restaurant in the Midwest. I will be taking a short blogging break. When I return I look forward to getting my blog back to normal. I will truly miss each of you.

Hi Judy,
The blog world isn't the same without you, but I'm so honored that you visited me while on your break :-)
I'm so happy that you shared the milkman story. When I put together the post I was wondering if there was anybody out there who still did have a milkman. I was so glad to hear that he is still around in some parts of the country.

Enjoy the rest of your break and we will be waiting ever so patiently for your return.
