There are two types of tests - written and practical. The written is multiple choice/ matching/true false from the information we receive in class. For example "What temperature is soft-ball sugar stage?" The next part is about ingredients - we have to memorize 6 recipes and then fill in 10 blanks of one recipe of the school's choosing. The practical exam is one dessert that we have made during class. They supply the ingredient list, but we can't bring in our notes. The classes are taught in French, but there is a translator in the first two levels - one reason why I am not continuing for the third level!
I love the Moka cake best of all! It was the only dessert I kept for myself and ate with two bottles of wine for dinner one night - I was green the next day, but it was worth it! It will definitely be on my menu when I get home - probably as a smaller pastry instead of a full cake. Here is my blog and photo about Moka. I also like the Mogador Cake - chocolate and raspberries!
