Title Goes Here

I haven't posted in a month?

There is entirely too much that has me distracted as hell which means I don't blog. I went through about a week or two of not even checking the list of blogs I try to read daily on Bloglovin'. Fail.

School is going well. I have a new instructor. Cakes and Cake Assembly. I have to create a torte for a final grade in the class. Write a huge report on it -- the whys, the hows, the whats. Then I have to bake it. Oh, I also have to maintain a notebook that is due at the end of class, which is a brilliant idea in my opinion. I rather wish we had been doing it the whole time. The notebook has to contain all of our recipes we make in class, syllabus, powerpoints, notes we take, conversions, etc. It will be awesome to look back on it for reference when I want to bake something.

I bought The Flavor Bible. This book....geesh. It is pretty amazing for putting combining flavors that will taste well together. I bought it for the aforementioned torte I have to create and just figured it was a good investment.

I am also reading a book called My Life From Scratch by Gesine Bullock-Prado. It was formerly published under the title "Confections of a Closet Master Baker" <----LAWL! That is just pure genius. Unsure as to why she changed the title, but then I haven't really investigated any either. I love how she writes, how she includes a detailed recipe at the end of each chapter, and how she just lays it out there. She has her own blog as well -- G Bakes - Confections of a (Closet) Master Baker.
