FILLED PATE A CHOUX SWANS - Daring Baker's Challenge August 2012

I love choux buns, and in a lot of older cook books I collect, there are the choux swans.  So this month, when Kat from The Bobwhites challenged us to make the choux swans, I said to the family, ah, finally, I will make some swans.

The Daring Baker's recipe is here, but I used my Pastry Book from Le Cordon Bleu, and used the chantilly cream to fill the swans and top with straw berries and dust with icing sugar.

The mistake - I mis-read the line of baking the neck, and the neck is burnt... so, the black swan neck is not consumed... although the children did mop up the rest of the swans.

Was fun.
