And then it was Production Day
Miss Mischief has been planning a High Tea for her VCE Food & Technology subject for weeks. And weeks. And maybe a few more weeks. There have been production plans coming out of her ears, and searching for recipes all over the place. She had to have six complex processes (whatever that means), which had her making things from scratch that you would normally just buy.
After weeks of planning she had days of cooking. Things that required freezing to 'preserve' them were done in advance. Lots of things happened yesterday morning. In the process we learnt about fixing runny and split mayonnaise, and how to repair split, oily caramel. That was my job - googling how to fix stuff....
Finally, after all the cooking, and repairing, and mixing and stirring and photo-taking of every. single. step. (thank you Mr Busy, oh photographer extraordinaire!) we got to eat.
Cupcakes, and sponge cakes and profiteroles and sandwiches with all the complex things that went with them. And tea. Miss Mischief outdid herself. Her high tea was a smashing success.
And we left the dishes till this morning. Because none of us could look at it!
