Nothing beats the smell of fresh bread coming out of the oven and these rustic styles will have you running to the kitchen to bake. i. Rustic Ciabatta Bread - Ciabatta bread is one of the first styles I learned - an airy and sticky dough, this simple Italian bread is best when torn into pieces and dunked into Nonna's tomato sauce! ii. Slow-Rise Pain de Campagne - This French style bread develops its fantastic texture and crackling crust from a slow fermentation. iii. German Pumpernickel Rye Loaf - Pumpernickel is one of my favourite breads and mastering a rye-based bread is a good skill. I'll use this deliciously fragrant bread to then make rarebit (a glam name for cheese toast with pickles - but more involved than just putting cheese & pickles on toast).

Yay! Candy! A pastry kitchen can also include a confectionery, where candies are made. Here are some staples that every pastry chef learns to make. i. Colourful Lollipops - Clear and colourful, homemade lollipops are adorable. ii. Sea Salt Caramel Candies - Probably the top pick in any box of candies, making a salted caramel is a great skill to have - and you can even melt these for dipping apples into! iii. Raspberry Fruit Jellies with 3 Stvles - I have a real weakness for jelly candies, and making a classic soft fruit jelly candy is immensely gratifying, and when rolled into sugar, they absolutely sparkle. To complete the look, I'll show 3 easy ways to finish them - with sugar, so they look like a gumdrop, with cornstarch, so they look like Turkish Delight and finally, dipped in dark chocolate (my favourite).

Have a good repertoire of icings and glazes add flair and panache your cakes and cookies. Here we get a handle on the major styles and some delicious recipes where they are used. i. Royal Icing Sugar Cookies - Royal icing is likely the most popular style of icing, and here I'll show you how to do the "flood style" so that cookies can be decorated with an icing that sets to satin finish. ii. Doubled Glazed Classic Kugelopf - a Kugelopf is a striking almond yeast cake, but it's crowning glory is the hot sugar glaze that you repeatedly baste it in to give it shone and sweetness - and works to preserve the cake longer since it seals in the moisture. iii. Viennese Sacher Torte - This is the ultimate in glazed tortes. Originating from the Sacher Hotel in Vienna, this rich single-layer chocolate cake is completely covered in apricot jam and then finished with a glossy chocolate glaze. Recognized the world over.

Everyone from novice baker to professional patissier needs a few really tasty sweet breads. Loaf cakes share the characteristics of typically being baked in a loaf pan (but not exclusively)- they are moist and rich, but not as dense as a pound cake. i. Basic Banana Bread - The ultimate in quick breads, this is a recipe everyone needs to have. ii. Honey Spice Bread (Pain O'Epice) -A little more refined than a gingerbread cake, this honeyed spice bread stays lovely and moist. iii. Chocolate Pumpkin Swirl Sundt Cake with Butterscotch Glaze - Two quick breads swirled into one dessert - I love chocolate and pumpkin together and this recipe swirls them to create a beautiful contrast when the cake is sliced, and the butterscotch glaze takes the whole creation over the top.

One little word says so much! Sweet and decadent, fudge can be a candy or an element in a dessert. i. Quick Chocolate Fudge - This is an easy fudge, perfect for someone who may not have experience making candy (and even if you have, you'll love this). ii. New Orleans Pecan Fudge Pralines - The cooked brown sugar centre to this style of praline involves a cooked fudge technique. Dropped over toasted pecans and then dipped into chocolate, this are tru ly decadent. iii. Chocolate 4-Layer Cake with Fudge Frosting - This is fudge that will definitely make you smile! 4 layers of chocolate cake are slathered with a fudge frosting that uses the cooked fudge technique with sumptuous, spreadable results.

The combination of a flavoured custard filling topped with whipped cream is as important as apple pie on a diner menu, and with good reason - they are sinfully delicious. i. Chocolate Cream Pie - Chocolate crumb crust, creamy chocolate custard filling and whipped cream ... need I say more? ii. Double Maple Cream Pie - a cooked maple filling topped with a rich maple cream (and the addition of maple toasted pecans) makes these individual pies a new Canadian treat. iii. Banoffee Pies - created in the UK, I make my individual Banoffee pies with a homemade digestive biscuit crust, fill it with a layer of sliced bananas and top it with a sinful dulce de lechelike filling - and don't forget the whipped cream. OMG - first time I tried this, it changed my life.
