William Angliss Institute patisserie students and events students delivered a highly successful Spanish-themed annual Patisserie High Tea on 16 November this year.
Six patisserie teachers worked closely with five patisserie students each to create three desserts each which produced a colourful buffet featured delights including dessert paella, gazpacho, lemon tarts, and macaroons decorated with chocolate fans.
The special event challenges the Certificate IV Patisserie students to work closely with their teachers to design an array of food items including savoury and sweet.
Program Leader Patisserie Angela Tsimiklis said the event required students to use all their training to design and create unique patisserie items which captured the imagination.
“We all had a lot of fun coming up with the desserts and treats which reflect Spanish style,” Angela said.
William Angliss Institute Diploma of Events students embraced the role of co-ordinating the High tea event having lots of fun with colourful table centrepieces, reflecting the many great Spanish designers.
The events students worked closely with Angela to organise how the event would run, including the styling, the menu design and general operations of the event.
Undertaking a variety of roles, the event students also managed the running of the tea-themed function including: stylist, OHS + sustainability, bar, front-of- house, administration and protocols.
The showcase afternoon tea is open to members of the public and was well supported by industry.
