Day 45 - Florentines and Batens Marechaux

Yesterday and today I worked on Florentines (top of pan) and Batens Marechaux (bottom of pan). The above picture was taken on Monday and they are not complete yet. I baked the Florentines a little to much, making them too dark. The Florentines are a kind of like pralines made with almonds. The Batens Marechaux is like a meringue almond cookie.

On Tuesday I worked on tempering the chocolate then topping the Florentines and Batens Marechaux (see picture above).
On my practical last Friday, I got a 96. Not as good as the 100 the week before, but I'll take it.
