Here is a link to the Dehillerin store where I might buy a copper kettle to boil a whole animal or a small child, wicked witch-style! OK, maybe just a rolling pin and a tart ring to practice for my technical exam.
I have been working on my marzipan roses, and they are looking good! The Dacquoise cake seems to be on many previous exams, so I want to be prepared for it. I am just not looking forward to whipping the meringue and buttercream by hand. Will get a big fat whisk today too. I hope I can control myself in the culinary supply stores, it is going to be difficult.
