All new in 2012!

It’s been quite some time since we had a School Blog, and what better way to start off 2012’s blog than to welcome our new Head Teacher! Planet Cake is delighted to welcome award-winning pastry chef Luigi Stivaletta. Luigi joins us from TAFE NSW and Le Cordon Bleu. He has over 25 years’ experience which we look forward to him sharing with us. Welcome on board Luigi!

The Planet Cake School welcomed its first Guest Teacher of 2012, with Richard Festen joining us for much of January. Richard taught his unique modelling chocolate techniques with fantastic results!! We had great feedback from our students, including this testimonial from pastry chef Angelo Roche, who attended Richard’s Three Tier Ivory Present Stack class:

"It was simply magic! The techniques Richard demonstrated were unique and highly achievable. From my perspective it was well worth it. As a pastry chef I have not really had formal exposure to these types of techniques; it was invaluable. The course itself was conducted well; Richard Festen was an exceptional teacher and Planet Cake staff fantastic."

The Basics Series is currently undergoing an exciting revamp. We have updated the designs to give a fresh new look for 2012. Check out the Courses page of our website for more details!

The School is currently looking for students to attend Focus Groups. Come along and meet the school staff and let us know what you think about all aspects of the Planet Cake School. The Novelty Focus Group will be held from 10am to 12noon on Friday 17th February and the Basics Focus Group will be held from 10am to 12noon on Tuesday 21st February. All attendees will receive a $100 Planet Cake voucher for their time. To register your interest please email our Course Director at lesley@planetcake.com.au.

That's all for now, see you in class!
