Basic Eclairs

Hope everyone had a fantastic New Year and may 2016 bring great things to us all!

I for one does not typically make new year resolutions because I can never stick to them. I’ve never met anybody who has been able to stick to theirs. If you have leave me a comment telling me how you did it! 😉

Anyway I was a little hesitant to post this for two reasons

  1. The pictures did not turn out that great
  2. The whipped cream that I bought somehow scrambled, I didn’t even over whisk it! If you know why leave me a comment below! 🙂

I guess thats why it took me a while to decide whether I will post it or not. I ended up deciding that I could do a review of the pastry. A recipe from renowned chef Paul Hollywood, I knew that the eclairs would turn out exceptional.

For the icing I mixed my knowledge of buttercream and royal icing to come up with this delicious glaze. If I could I would have eaten the whole bowl. No exaggeration.
