Welcome to the Bold Baking Academy! In this video, we will talk about what we will cover throughout this course and what special equipment or ingredients you will need.
Take a basic cheesecake batter and add chocolate hazelnut spread for an amazing rich variation. You will learn how to properly mix a batter, the best way to bake a cheesecake and how to tell when it's perfectly baked. You will also go over some beautiful and simple presentation ideas.
Swiss rolls are not just for Yule logs. Get rolling with a fresh carrot cake take on this very popular UK dessert. Carrot cake itself is believed to have come from carrot puddings in Europe starting when sugar was expensive and more readily available carrots were used to sweeten food. This carrot cake recipe is slightly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg for an all around delicious flavor that is perfect for springtime parties and beyond. After preparing the batter, baking and chilling you'll be a rolling master as you are guided through the method of making a 'swiss roll' cake without experiencing the dreaded cracks!
Challenge yourself with this showstopper dessert! No-bake cheesecakes are terrific and a great method to be familiar with for any time of the year, but especially if it's too warm to turn on the oven. Level up by swirling in roasted strawberries and piling the cheesecake dramatically high with a mess of homemade meringues, whipped cream and more strawberries.
