The Great Ethan Allen In the Kitchen....with An Origami Whale.
Ok, So Cheryl wanted to take another stab at baking some cakes and I thought I would lend a hand. Actually, she forced me to participate. So We worked on some making some Petite layer cakes with frosting and then Ganash. I must admit the ganash was fun to play with. It's much like pudding only it hardens to that cool chocolate shell that you see on the food network. We decided to put a raspberry filling in the middle. The good news is that it worked out for an early attempt. The bad news is that we have to eat them and we are still struggling to lose the holiday weight. Other than that....I have been in love with the Origami Humpback whale. It turned out so cool I folded it several other times. It is based off of the origami Koi model only with a little modifications. I was thinking about making a mobile out of them, but we will have to see how they all look together. I still wanted to work on some birds and some better paper.
