What you'll do
Laurence invites you to bake a classical French dessert : the Rum Baba... tansformed into local "Fine Bordeaux Baba", a spirit that her husband locally produces. After making the cake batter, we'll bake it into individual molds. Meanwhile, we'll do our home-made whipped cream. Thirdly, we'll make a Fine Bordeaux tasting, from various barrels. Then everyone will blend his own syrup with his preferred Fine Bordeaux, that will soak his cake. To end with, we'll enjoy tasting our cakes all together : Fine Baba, home-made whipped cream, and home-made jam.
