Sunday night I went over the recipe...just in case....let's see...what kind of red apples do we get here, Fuji, Washington, New Zealand - I have to settle for Granny Smith or its gonna be mushy :(... we can't get Calvados here - dang, I had just used up my Apple Bicardi...Brandy, just use Brandy!
Monday morning I poached the apples - shucks, had to run off for a meeting and then errands! 10pm - carried on with the Apple Caramel, midnight - Biscuit Roulade, might as well make my favourite so I did the almond kind. Looked at the time, 2am - if I cut them gently, they might just hold, phew, so far so good. 3am - might as well spread the apricot preserves, might as well slice and assemble the pieces! 4.30am - I'm going to sleep.
Tuesday morning, please let me have my coffee first...and a little facebook won't hurt, right? 12noon - better get on with the Italian Meringue...whip the cream...finally pouring in the Bavarian Cream filling. Quickly, got to chill it. Apple Rose Decor - slice, almost there, done! Oh, apple Glaze...
5pm - photography!!! Hope I made it in time........
11pm - We managed to chill the charlotte and finally got down to tasting it.
Faye - What cream is this? Bavarian? (she's never tried Bavarian before), Oh Bavarian is my favourite cream. This is the best cake I've ever eaten, may I have another slice please?
Natasha - exquisite and delicious, I can eat more than one slice
Babs - You know me, I don't eat cream but this I can eat.
Nicole - I like!
Me - very nice
