French Recipe : Galette Des Rois À La Frangipane (King’s Cake Or King Cake)

Source: YouTube

Yesterday I finally made Galette Des Rois À La Frangipane (French Style King’s Cake or King Cake) for the first time using a recipe by the YouTube channel So Frenchy in her video French Recipe : Galette Des Rois (King’s Cake):

I added 1 oz more almonds than the recipe called for because the bag that I had was 6 oz instead of 5 oz so I somewhat increased the amount of most of the other ingredients as well.

I lost most of my egg yolk when it accidentally fell into the mixture which did not leave enough for me to spread on the outside unfortunately, and maybe that is why my edges did not seal well enough so some of my mixture leaked out while it was cooking causing a burning smell.

Fortunately the final product did not look as bad as I had expected due to my mistakes, but I put too much almond and it was not sweet enough or moist enough.

It was not bad but not as good as I had expected, probably due to some of my errors, and maybe I will try to make it sweeter if I try to make it again.

I was supposed to make this months ago for my coworkers because I found the baby in the king cake last year and so I was supposed to bring a king cake this year, but I never did. 😀

But thanks to So Frenchy I have finally made one, not for my coworkers because I wanted my family and I to try this recipe first to make sure that I could make it good enough to share with my coworkers, and so thank you So Frenchy.

The end,

Dreams

Learning How To Fly During A Mardi Gras Parade

Source: Wikipedia

Last night I remember part of my last dream, which took place during the day in a fictional city that looked somewhat like a larger version of LC, and I think that the dream started with me in a classroom.

Our teacher was a somewhat large woman with medium-dark brownish colored skin with black colored hair, and I remember talking a lot with about two of my classmates.

After class we talked about going to the cinema to watch a film and then maybe going to a parade, probably a Mardi Gras parade, and we talked about going to a few other places.

For some reason our teacher talked with us after school, and I remember her teaching us how to fly; and eventually we were able to fly over the school a bit, and then we continued on our journey to the cinema on foot and/or by automobile for some strange reason.

We then split up and we went to several other places, and we agreed to meet up at the school later & then go to the parade; and I remember going to several places alone mostly such as: a restaurant maybe, a few stores, et cetera.

Later we met up at the school as people were preparing for the parade, but instead of waiting for the parade to start, we decided to go flying instead; but some of us forgot how to fly, and so we found the teacher & we asked her to show us how to fly again.

The teacher took us where there were no people around and she showed us how to fly again, and so we started practicing flying in the sky; which was very fun.

Flying was not so easy at first we had to learn how to float up high in the sky until we reached the clouds, we had to learn how to move around instead of just float, we had to learn how to float up & down, and we had to learn how to start controlling our flying better.

I remember us trying to jump from cloud to cloud, but none of us were skilled enough for that yet; and so the teacher recommended that we practice jumping & flying on top of the interstate bridge system, which had a flat area on the top which was high in the sky where no one would see us, and it was like its own concrete road that stretched across the country below the clouds.

It was an amazing experience being able to fly, we thanked the teacher again and we said goodbye so that we could continue our journey, and we continued our journey & flying practice by flying & jumping on top of the interstate bridge system; which was very fun.

Our plan was to travel the entire interstate bridge system flying & jumping across the entire country, but I woke up.

The end,
