Take this class to enhance your pastry case and bakery offering with travel cakes. Loved because of their longer shelf life and transportability, travel cakes, madeleines and financiers have become popular among customers on the move in hotels, bakeries, and pastry shops. Elevate your travel cakes by learning new filling recipes such as caramel, compote, confit and ganache. Of course, appearance matters too! You will explore the different possibilities to add attractive looks to your products including different glazes, and chocolate décor. Chef Guillaume will demonstrate how to temper chocolate and properly apply glazes to ensure consistent shine, thickness, and shelf life. In this open demo, Chef Guillaume will discuss various preservation techniques to maximize the shelf life of your travel cakes.
Experience in a professional kitchen is not necessary, but a foundation of basic pastry techniques will help you be successful in this course.
