Fun With Pate a Choux

Right now I'm working on profiteroles. In fact they are in the oven as I type. I'll post again when they are all done but I thought I would share a funny story about these first. I once had a boss that thought these were soooo difficult to make. In fact she kinda made it a test to see how good you were. I never got to try them out with her because I was just a cake decorator there. But, and this is the funny part, these are soooo easy to make. She was just one of those people that thought too highly of herself and made it seem like anything she did was to much for anyone else to do. And something else that was funny about her: she called her profiteroles eclairs. Eclairs and profiteroles are basically the same. But if they are long they are eclairs. If they are a ball they are profiteroles.


Anyways, didn't say this was going to be an enlightening post. Just wanted to share something amusing before I shared my work.

Hmm I wonder who you're talking about! Lol... I was put to that test on one of my first days there. They snickered because they thought I was going to mess them up, especially because I had never made choux pastry before. I showed them! Mine came out perfect! And you're right, they are very easy to make. She's such an idiot!

I am SO motivated and encouraged to think that I could make these, even though I’ve had a huge recent pastry failure that I dared to fess up to on my blog. I’ll do this though! Thanks for the simple and inspiring explanation!
