BY CALVIN VIRGIL, NYC:
I can’t believe I have less than a month left here in New York! June is now over and the pressure is on! School has been amazing. We are in the final stretch and we just finished our final level of plated desserts & now are moving on to wedding cakes. After we do our wedding cakes we will move on to our finals which will take place over 5 days. We will have to make a showpiece of our choice (chocolate or sugar), some type of cake or tart, a bread, a candy, and a petit four. Our showpiece must house these items. Our theme is “cities”. Of course, I chose New Orleans! One of the best cities in the world! I’m working on my sketches for my cake and showpiece right now. My last day of work was last Wednesday. It was definitely a bittersweet moment. Now I get to focus on my finals and seeing a little bit more of the city before I leave.
I just want to take time once again to thank everyone who has supported me thus far and who will continue to support me in all of my endeavors. Words can’t express my gratitude!
Until next time, dream on & turn up! Haha
