Fooood!

This might be a surprise to some, but I actually loves food. I’m just hardly ever hungry and because of that I don’t eat very often or appears into food.
Anyway, yesterday I went to a International Food Market and everything just looked so good! And it smelled super delicious too.
Crêpes, Paella, French stews, French pastries, and Dutch cheeses. Well among others.
In the end I chosed the Crocodile burger from the Australian stand, which was super delicious, and British fudge. Yummy.

Dear diary: Marsipan decoration galore!

NaghmnlösI’m so tired right now, because the last two days I’ve been working non-stop making decoration for a huge 6ft long canoe cake with a Hawaii theme. We we’re supposed to be three people on this cake, one sculpting the actual cake and the other two making the decoration. But the third person was sick so I had to make decoration for two.
Thursday I only had a 30 min pause (which was lunch) and yesterday I didn’t got a break until the cake was all done.

I made so many marsipan fruits that I now never will make another one ever again! So many bananas, oranges, clementines, limes, lemons and dragon fruits, my own creation ♥
I also made hibiscus inspired flowers to really give a true Hawaii feel to the cake.
It was a lot of hard work, but the end result was amazing (especially considering we were only two people working on it) and everyone was very impressed with it, so I’m happy 🙂

Dear blog: A good day

imageThis is my first personal diary-ish entry on here. Mostly I tell my life through different random stories and such.
But what I’ve been through today just made me feel like I just wanted to share a good day with you all.

Since I study to become a pastry chef I need to have internship at bakeries and starting on Monday I will go out on a four week internship.
So today was the day to visit the place I’m gonna be at, and I was so fricking nervous.
I’m not very good at meeting new people and this wasn’t just a casual meeting. No this place is one of best bakery in the county and I was terrified that I would make a completely fool of myself. That they wouldn’t want me there at all, leaving me an huge failure.

It didn’t help that my brother who was supposed to come with me, had to go on a meeting at the exactly same time, leaving me all alone to deal with this.
On my way to the bakery I tried to think positive and give myself a good peptalk.

Happily it did go very well. I got to know all the details, managed to be both positive and somewhat social, plus didn’t say something wrong or fall on the ground (it had happen).

I was so happy that it had gone so well that I awarded myself with an large Caramel frapino while waiting on my buss. In the bright sunlight it was the perfect award to give my self esteem a huge hug.
You know that you’re feeling kind of good when you ride by a sign saying ‘The lowest point’ and thinking to yourself “Not anymore”.
Today was a good day 🙂
