Happy Birthday to my dear blog.

Happy belated birthday blog!  You are officially three years old.

I just realised that my first ever blog post was in May 2011, when I put a little video of myself icing a birthday cake.

The crazy thing is, this blog has been the journal of a personal food and life journey that I adore.  I love updating it, sharing it, and going over the little snippets of life I'd forgotten about, to show friends what I've been eating and creating the past few years.

Next week I have the big practical exam, the one where you need to make four productions in a limited amount of time.  After that, the written exams will happen.  In two weeks time, I'll officially be a pastry chef.  So that's quite cool.  It's taken a while, but I'm getting there in the end.

Just some photos

Time seem to be on fast forward at the moment!  And I seem to be finding it harder to find the time for my special little internet space.  Here are some instagram photos that I've been taking the last few weeks at work and at school.  

It is strawberry season so the patisseries have been altered for a more summery palette.  Everything is colourful and bright.  We've gone from the chocolate/caramel/coffee and cream flavours of winter to fresh strawberry tarts, fraisiers, raspberry millefeuilles and passionfruit and raspberry entremets.
