So, the wedding is over. As much as I enjoyed it, I am also glad that we are now husband and wife and will have a little bit of peace and quiet again. Two days after our wedding we went on our amazing honeymoon. We booked a flight in the business class with Swiss Airlines and were sooo looking forward to checking out the seats, the food and the service there. We packed our bags and went to the airport only to find out that they downgraded us Continue reading
It is finally over. Yes, I know weddings are sooo beautiful and romantic and so on, but for the bride and groom they are also very stressful. I was soooo looking forward to this magical day but also I was looking forward to it being done and dusted. The whole day was a total blurr. And now that we have the pictures from our amazing friend and photographer Melanie Koruna we can finally see what the wedding was like. Continue reading
Okay I finally did it. As I told you in my earlier post I failed the first practical exam by only a few points, so I had to retake the exam pay all the fees again and go trhough a three day torture again. No, I am just kidding about the torture part. It was a lot of fun actually. This time we were only three contestants and one of them was a friend of mine, the other one a rather nervous but very nice little lady. Continue reading
Yeah… the title says it all. I failed my final pastry exam because of 3 lousy points! For those of you who don´t know – the exam consists of 3 parts: 1. The written exam, 2. The oral exam and 3. The practical exam which is the one I unfortunately failed. Continue reading
It was my first time in Innsbruck and I really loved it! The city is surrounded by mountains, it kinda feels like you were trapped in it but in a good way 😛 Continue reading
*Sigh* It has been a rough couple of weeks… 5 weeks to be precise! 5 weeks of baking, learning, mixing and decorating. And let me tell you- I am done! We were producing so much that at the end of the day I had no idea what to do with all these cakes and tartes. So I just gave them away to strangers on the train station or my neighbours or my collegues from work.
So, this is the first fun part I get to do in order to plan my wedding… finding the dress! It was soooo much fun to go dress shopping with my friends and I found a few really very beautiful dresses and I also found MY dress already. It was pretty sudden and I knew it instantly… Continue reading
I recently signed up for a pastry program to prepare for the big master exam. The course takes place in a pastry school two days a week. One day for four hours and the second day for 8 hours. So they basically try to teach you all the basics you need to know about the world of baking.
The big pastry program is about to start and suddenly I am getting a little nervous. Just to give you an idea of the way you become a pastry chef in Germany and Austria – you usually do an apprenticeship for 2 to 3 years first. That is where you will work in an existing bakery as an apprentice baker and you also go to pastry school.
