Sugar Swan

Molly the Baker (my youngest daughter) is back at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park.  She had a great experience at The Williamsburg Lodge on her externship and was recently home for a short visit.

She sent me an email with this picture.  She said she doesn’t thinks she’s very good with sugar, but I love her swan!  She is likely disenchanted since apparently her hands are blistered from the heat of the sugar, despite wearing three pair of gloves.  She is done with this project and said she is moving on to chocolate sculpture, fondant, and royal icing.

Hopefully she’ll send some more pictures!


She did give me this picture of her with a friend in their tall baker hats!  Love this.
