I am really excited about this and the endless possibilities that come with it! i have a small window of time the past weekend before i have to begin working on a few massive bakes for the next few weeks and going through the macaron book draft with high resolution photos. i don't usually touch my bakes on weekends as i have family commitments. i have to stress that these are made in a big rush and photos are taken in haste so the finishing of both pastry and photography aren't fantastic. even then, i must say that i am already cute overloaded by these simple creations. i say simple because choux pastry really is much easier than macarons or chiffon cakes. so much easier that i am planning to make one of these a class for junior chef probably in october.
everything you see is free from fondant. filling is custard. deco is chocolate. even the wheels on the car are made from choux pastry batter. overall sugar content is less than macarons or chiffon cakes too. all piped by freehand without templates, including the plane wings and propeller. it would be neater if i had time to work with templates.
are you excited about my next book creative baking: choux pastry? 😆
(disclaimer: these designs may or may not appear in this exact form in the book. i made these to let the editor have a better idea of the exciting potential that choux pastries can have. i just haven't had the time or bandwidth to develop many designs yet.)

Best part of baking cookies is being able to share the joy with everyone. 😬
spent the better part of the weekend baking cookies for friends, from chocolate cookies to shortbreads to lactation cookies (for a friend) - a total of 12 different flavours to be precise.
and i’m surprisingly not sick of cookies yet. 🤔
these cookies here are apple crumble cookies (which was one of my favourite flavours out of all the cookies that i had made). packed with spices, oats and chewy dried apples in a crisp cookie shell. this bite size cookie is a great alternative when you don’t quite want something chocolatey.
the next time you decide to make some oat and raisin cookies, i urge you to replace it with some dried apples instead, it’s absolutely delicious. 😍
just make sure you use a good quality one which you would happily munch on. 👌🏻?
