professional baking class - cakes 2

for our second cake class, we did butter based cakes. this included cheesecake (not my favorite but they turned out pretty good nonetheless), pound cake, and checkerboard cake. i love love love pound cake, so i was excited that we got to try three different versions: the master pound cake, the perfect pound cake, and the great pound cake (i think that's what it's called). they were all tasty, fyi. for the cheesecakes, we did a test to see what happens if you bake it without a water bath. my partner and i were in charge of the sacrificial cheesecake, so ours cracked down the middle. it still tasted good, though!
