In class today, we made coffee cakes, which were apparently delicious. The pictured cake has hazelnut filling, but the one I dropped off for my mom's co-workers was almond paste filled. I love when we get to...enhance...or decorate our work, like braiding this cake. It looks so pretty and makes me feel creative...plus, I feel like I'm learning a practical new skill. Especially since my dough handling skills leave something to be desired, I like the practice.
We also made date turnovers, but they looked and smelled...unappealing, so I left those behind.
