Tips para un buen resultado

Me pareció muy interesante el curso, lo ha dejado claro que los productos que se empleen y la cantidad es muy importante para obtener un buen resultado, a parte de eso, los tips de como conservar la preparación, en que postres pueden ser agregados o acompañados, que ingredientes reemplazar por otros, si no se encuentran en el mercado.
