Nougat, O! the marking, O! the cutting
Here are some pictures of me cutting and marking nougat.
Here I am, the terror of Greenville. ;-)
Notice how I use the caramel cutter to mark the nougat. You have to be careful or you will rip it. You could do this with a form. I have them and I use them sometimes. Sometimes I just use the cutter as a gig. And sometimes I cut one perfect nougat and just use that.
Here's a detail.
The hardest part of making any confection, pies, cake, you name it is the cutting. That's what I was taught and that's why I try to get Kim to cut all the pies and cake. She's a wizard. However, I have to cut my own nougat. I do all right. ;-)
Oh, the agony of the cutting.
And a detail of cutting.
And speaking of nougat, Tip Top Country Store has a great picture of me up on their website. Kim took these pictures, by the way. Nice job, honey (nougat)! ;-) I took the top picture of the nougats. Hard to do a white on white shot. Kim suggested we use a colored background for the Tower 'o Nougat you see here.
By the way, I wouldn't work like this normally. This was a little contrived for the shot for the blog. Notice the caramel cutter and other things that are taking up space and are in the way. So, don't do as i blog. I wanted to show the accoutrement as I was working.
