As of 3/19/2012, Sweet Hearts Patisserie is open! While I don’t remember much of what I did yesterday (I do remember vaguely making cookie dough balls for gingersnap cookies and making some yummy brownies), today I learned how to (and how not to) frost a cup cake. It’s a lot harder than it looks. You have to keep your hard surprisingly straight up and down and not as curved as I thought. It’s still a work in progress but I will get the hang of it, I have faith.
I learned another what NOT to do today as well. When making cookie dough do NOT use the whisking attachment on the kitchenaid appliance. Use the paddle, otherwise you’re in for it. I made a fairly simple sugar cookie dough recipe today and I mistakenly used the whisk attachment and sadly ended up wasting time scraping dough off every wire and I still didn’t get it all. Don’t be a fool like me. Know which attachment to use before hand!
