Pastry Course Day Twenty-one: 3D decorative sponge cake and fruit bavarois

cakies' pastry challenge

The 21st day of the course was also the first day of the fourth module. The fourth module is all about basic pastry techniques. I do think I kind of like these type of modules the best. I love to experiment with flavours etc.!

On this day we learned how to create a decorative sponge cake using a 3D mat. Decorative sponge cake is a thin light piece of cake that you can, for example, place at the side of a nice bavarois. Using a special mat you can give your sponge a 3D effect. It was really fun to do. As always, it may seem a piece of cake (no pun intended), but you always end up working on it for a lot longer than you initially anticipated!

The bavarois (aka Bavarian cream) we made was a nice fruit bavarois, good basic recipe for me to develop even further and create my own recipe from (which, I of course will share on the site!).

I was really happy with the endresult and the flavour was pretty good as well!
