Hola!  I started my externship on Thursday at Palmer's Bakery in Darien, CT. I am doing three days a week in the cake decorating room and one in the kitchen, doing the pastries for the display case.  I have only been in the decorating room so far, but am looking forward to the baking day.  I start out every morning getting cupcakes ready for the display case.  We do a chocolate cupcake with oreo buttercream, a chocolate with peanut butter buttercream, a white chocolate raspberry, a coconut and of course just plain vanilla and chocolate.  Here's a picture!

After the cupcakes are done, we start filling and crumb coating cakes for the days orders. When the crumb coats are done, they sit in the fridge for awhile then we ice ad decorate them. Most of the cakes so far have been pretty simple.  The bakery gets a couple wedding cakes a week right now, but that number will go up when wedding season starts in June.  Here are a couple of the cakes I made this week. 
This one was chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream

Vanilla cake with coconut buttercream covered in coconut flakes

On Friday, they let me do a wedding cake! It turned out really nice and I hope the bride and groom liked it!  Here is is!  =]

That's all for now!  I'll keep you posted on the rest of my internship and fun things I make! =]
