It’s nearly the 2nd year anniversary of Pastry Lane. So much has happenned since then and so much have i learned. I’ve always had that little knack of making cakes and not usually fearful of the making side of things but it was always the execution I worried about. In my 2 years if not more, I have been to a few classes, learnt heaps on-line and of course practice, practice, practice. Now so much more confident and loving it.
Of course you never learn everything right away. Each cake brings on a new challenge. New decorating methods, new sugar fondant embelishments and techniques.
I thought I’d share with you my first Pastry Lane cake. It was for a dear friend of mine and my daughters who was to celebrate her 18th Birthday. Just starting off my dream business, my friend not only ordered the birthday cake but many dessert items from my dessert menu to complete her dessert table for her guests.
There were Vanilla and Rosewater Cupcakes, Lemon Curd Crumble Tartlets, Mini Vanilla Tiered Tower Biscuits, Macarons.
Very excitedly and appreciative I set out on the day to deliver my baked goods to go on her dessert table for the party. What a great job they did!
I was very thankful to her for giving me that positive start as I had just set off to make Pastry Lane become my lifelong dream come true.
