A couple days ago a friend and I baked a butter cake and peach pie. I hadn't baked anything exciting in months. I have to say I'm not a big fan of baking in the hot summer heat but I needed to put into practice some of the skills I attained in pastry school. I don't want to forget them. When fall comes around and the climate cools I'm positive Ill be baking a lot more. Until then i'll maybe make some mousses or panna cotta.
