【上课】歌剧院蛋糕(欧培拉) 【Attend Class】 Opera Cake

歌剧院蛋糕 =P
Opera欧培拉歌剧院蛋糕-经典法式蛋糕,河马妈“肖想”学这款蛋糕已经很久。。。咖啡+巧克力,之河马妈而言是黄金组合,也是河马阿嫲的最爱,当然要学起来啦!

This little French classic cake is one of the "must learn" cake. I wanted to attend class to learn such classic cake and not just do it with any grab online recipe. There are too many version online and many of them claimed that their recipe are from Le Cordon Bleu, but when I compare they look not all the same in terms of ingredients! I am kinda confuse....

之前参加了比赛赢得赞助商Palate Sensation的现金卷,可以用来付上课的学费。河马妈怕输,立马上网报名!哈哈哈哈~ 也不是怕输,就碰巧瞄到这一堂课,千金难得,马上给他报下去啦!还拉了烘焙咖Ni陪我一块儿去玩。

Thanks to Palate Sensation for such generous sponsored gift for the Bake off contest I joined earlier. I think I am really lucky one, when I check on their website to see if there is any interesting class to attend and this immediate draw my attention. I know I must attend Ms. Nan class to learn it!

“不修边幅”的欧培拉~ =P
上课的地方好偏僻,停车场又难找,河马妈兜兜转转好多圈也看不到停车场入口,最后幸得Ni帮我问了大厦的管理员,有人指路果然入口马上就出现。。。幸好有提早出门,还赶得及上课。。。

The school located in abit ulu place, I couldn't find the parking entrance despite I go round and round in between the tall buildings! Ok, blur hippo I am, it is actually just right at the junction I make a turning, I just didn't see it! Duh! Well, it is not actually an ulu location, I learnt that we hardly can get a carpark slot if it is a weekday! Haha! It looks ulu because that was a Saturday morning which most of the company is off!

河马妈和老师Nan
我们一班5个学员,算是小班。老师Nan性格很活泼,而且讲解很仔细,会确定我们每一个步骤都跟得上,再接着做下一步。

There are only 5 of us attended the class, a small class, I love it! Our instructor Ms. Nan is a bubbly person. She is very detail when explaining the steps, and she make sure we are with her when she demo the step to us.

认真的河马妈~ 哈哈哈~
认真的河马妈~ 哈哈哈~
其实歌剧院蛋糕没有我想象的难做,看起来好多层,要准备的东西好像也多。。。准备起来其实不算麻烦,一层一层组合起来也没花多少时间。。。我们一边做一边听老师讲解,一堂课也就3小时。所以啊,真的想做,动手就是了!呵呵~

Opera is not as difficult as I think. It has so many layers and so many component to prepare, but actually each of the components take very little time to complete. To put everything together also doesnt really took us very long. For 3 hours, we manage to finish everything. So if you are still hesitating to make an Opera, don't think, just DO IT! =D

切面,有一层一层,还不错!
第一次做,看得到层次分明,开心!河马妈把蛋糕分一半给河马阿嫲,另一半带回家,因为有酒不让河马小孩吃,全部河马妈一个人包办!哇哈哈哈哈哈!下一次做,我要增加咖啡的比例,让咖啡的味道更浓郁一些!

因为是上课的食谱,不能分享食谱哦~ 不过我有在网上找到说是蓝带的食谱,可以参考一下。

I cannot share the recipe since this is belongs to the school. But you may want to refer to the link below for the recipe, the recipe from "Choco Paris" was adapted from Le Cordon Bleu! Enjoy!
