Cream Puffs



This is the only photo I managed to take of the cream puffs I made today :p As I was rushing out :p

I split up the work today - made the pastry cream, baked the choux, and assembled separately due to my awkward schedule today.

The first Birthday cake I baked for an old pal... me the gan cheong baker


Don't you find that the strawberry shortcake look like Snow White? :)
"Gan cheong" is a Cantonese term and it means anxious/nervous. I won't deny that I am a gan cheong baker, often clumsy in the kitchen, spilling ingredients on the table top, fumbling through the ingredients, running back to my laptop to double check the ingredients, measurements and steps :p But I enjoy baking nevertheless :)
