Week V: Resto week

So this week was a bit different from the previous weeks, because we had to make the dessert for the school restaurant! We made millefeuille for the restaurant, made macarons for two days, a succès cake and some cake decoration.

Week VI is morning classes again, as I didn’t make any time to blog in the weekend I’m rushing to type this blog before going to bed.. Which is at latest around 23:00h.
