Ultimate Chocolate Treats at Shermay's

I have been looking forward to going back to Shermay's again for some workshops. When I saw what was going to be demonstrated for the Ultimate Chocolate Treats II by Chef Joycelyn, without hesitation, I signed up for the course for today. Actually what really interest me was the Truffles au Chocolat. In my past few post, I mentioned about having Royce chocolates. The Truffles looked very much like Royce chocolate, and I had wanting to know how to make similar taste to the Royce. Indeed, it wasn't disappointing to attend this workshop and see how Chef Joycelyn did it.

Everything she did, made it looked rather simple. In actual, I knew it wasn't that simple to make. The goodies that she made today were really sinful, but really good. She told us that she had attempted 13th times to get the right recipe for her nutella cupcakes, before she finally got it right on the 14th attempt. I do agree that so far, I've seen and even tried one nutella recipe, that does not really bring out the nutella taste. I thought nutella might not really be bakeable. So now I know, there are really a lot of nutella fans out there, including Chef Joycelyn!


Besides the four recipes that she made, she also gave us some variations of the truffles, shortbreads and biscottis. She was really very generous with her sharings and experience and tips. I enjoyed her class, though it was pretty short. At the end of the class, we got to bring back the cupcake, biscotti and chocolate cookie. The truffle was taken during the workshop.

Hi Adeline,
Oh! I'm flattered that you would like to meet me. ;) But would you be able to recognise me if you see me? I don't think I have any pictures of myself on my baking blog! :) There are always other opportunities, aren't there? :)

Hi there,
Yes, you're right I probably won't know who you are unless you wear a tag that says "passionbaker" hahaha...

Anyway, I'll be going for Joycelyn's Chocolate Fudge Cake class on 31May :)

Hi Adeline,
I pondered for quite a while before deciding that I won't join her class for the Choc Fudge Cake, though I really would like to. Btw, we have a blogger's potluck party on 31 May. Guess you won't be able to join us then. :<

Hihi,
Doubt so as I'll have to rush home to my 6mths old baby :) I didn't know that there is a blogger's party :P

Hey, have you tried to make the truffles? I tried it yesterday and somehow it refused to harden :S I've emailed to Joycelyn for advise.

Have a great party! Cheers :)

Hi Adeline,
Oh...What a shame you can't joined us. Wish you could. With such a small baby, and you're going places to learn baking? Woah! It's either your passion for baking is really high, or you really have a trusted person to take care of your baby! ;)
I've not tried the truffles yet. Maybe I'll try it for Mother's Day! :) But I've started the biscotti. Hey, why don't you drop me an email @ aloyallyanders@gmail.com so that we can discuss more. Not convenient to discuss here! ;) Thanks for sharing, really!
