Some weeks ago I visited my friend’s bakery in order to learn how to make croissants (we don’t make them). Got some good tips and recipes to try out. Absolutely fell in love with the idea of mixing the butter, which gets laminated in the dough, with some flour in order to make it more workable. Wanna keep trying that method. And also thought the way they squeezed the ends of the ready croissants together was quite cute (like in the picture). These I made at home now, just became a bit too small in the end. Want bigger croissants! But the taste, was delicious.
Been making more fancy cakes too. This one with cherries, chocolate basis, kirsch mousse (alkohol), chocolate mousse and some marzipan (like all the cakes in Germany). Was quite sophisticated and deluxe, indeed.
Then I made a monster bread. Decided to spray it with some lye. Ha! Looks so funny. And I still can do the plaits!
Now testing some baguettes.
