Sweet treats...

As most of you know I am attending culinary school out here in Boulder at the Culinary School of the Rockies...it's for pastry arts and its only 5 weeks long, but very intensive! I'm in school all day (8-4 or 5 or 5:30), hearing lectures and then baking all day long! It's fun but extremely challenging. I'm doing alright, and I'm halfway through...here are some pictures of desserts we've made, as a class, or just me, or with my partner...it's a french pastry school...

A fruit tart...



Another fruit tart...



Frangipane tart, rustic fruit tart, and a mini fruit tart...
(I only have half because my partner took home the other half and I forgot my camera in class that day!)



Cream puffs and cream puff swans...



More cream puffs...



Puff pastry day...croissants, danishes...



For those chocolate lovers...we've had two days of working with chocolate (which is hard and kind of a pain)...

Chai truffles



Earl Grey Truffles...



Playing around with chocolate...



Just a few things we've done in class... more to come!
