With more people going vegan though you might be able to get a position at a regular bakery and set them up with a specialty vegan section
I SO would love to do that. I actually have two places in mind, but it’s hard to market myself considering I don’t have any actual job experience as a pastry cook and haven’t even so much as taken a single class on any of the stuff I’m doing.
I’m 100 confident in my skills, if anything, coming up with my own recipes for macarons, choux, puff pastry, pastry cream, and meringue all on my own and all on a whim makes me feel overconfident.
I feel like I am the vegan god, I can control food to make it become whatever I want it to be. I can make impossible things exist, I can make financiers that don’t have all the eggs and butter in it. I can make even make genoise, a cake that’s literally mostly eggs, without any eggs at all, and it’s the same texture and taste. It’s just convincing someone else that I can do that and they should pay me a lot of money to do it.
Go to a vegan bakery and apply for a job, I'm not kidding. Or try to somehow start your own vegan food mailorder/service thingie. You should really consider doing something in that line of work, or combine it with your love for weddings and do vegan wedding catering.
Honestly, I want to, but I don’t think there’s a vegan bakery around here that I can work at. I’m doing my mailorder/local order thing to see if there’s any interest, really, I just want to open my own shop eventually. For now I have this, I have a menu with a bunch of things I can make, and I’ll see where it goes.
I did a thing/ I am doing a thing. I figure this will be kind of cool and fun to do, and I’m really excited about this. Order stuff from me if you’re in the PA/NJ/DE/NY/MD area. And also, spread the news so people can find out about this.
I don’t care if you’re straight edge, but I do care if you don’t eat the crusts on your pizza. Dealbreaker material.
One time I hung out with a bunch of people from school and they cropped me out of all the photos of us and posted them on facebook, that was incredibly awkward.
Hockey is so fucking entertaining without even meaning to be.
All these hockey gifs and they didn’t include the best one:
this made me want to watch hockey
that gif above me. is my home team.
honestly favorite sport ever.
Basically, this was the result of recipe testing the past couple days to get the perfect vegan french macaron:
1. “Egg whites” too thin, did not puff at all.
2. Thicker but no feet, oven temp too high
3. Got “egg whites” to perfect consistency, let dry too long so even though I finally got feet, they were uneven.
4. Less leavening, air in whites,drying time, and a lower oven temp gave me perfect looking and tasting macarons. Success.
