Coupe Du Monde de la Patisserie 2009 Lyon
25 and 26 January 2009 was the time again for the world cup pastry in Lyon,France.
Planning allready long time to go,and this year the was the time to have a look @ “the big boys”.
22 countries were competing this year and they were devided over 2 days.
Each team consist of 3 members and they have 8 hours to make;
12 plated desserts,3 ice-cakes,3 chocolate cakes, a sugar showpiece,a ice sculpture and a chocolate showpiece.
I heard allready good stories from backhome (the Netherlands), that our team going for 200% Gold,nothing less!
As they had in 2005 the Silver medal, and ended a procent in points behind France.
They subject our team had chosen was James Bond 007.
When they presented the showpieces and all the pastries, i saw our team allready on the podium,wauw what a fantastic presentation!!
But with some really bad luck,one of the showpieces fell down 3 minutes after the complete setup, what resulted in big pointloss for the end score.
Still they managed to get a 5th place,what is amazing.
France became 1st,Italy 2nd and Belgium 3rd.
