Over 30 baking and cake decorating projects for the latest hot trend in baking, straight from the patisseries of Paris – Éclairs!

Choux pastry is often thought of as difficult to make and perfect, but in fact it’s the easiest pastry you’ll ever make! It’s extremely rewarding watching the magic puff that happens inside the oven and it’s really easy if you follow the basic rules.

Choux pastry is so versatile it can play host to a million different fillings, toppings, shapes and decorations and is equally delicious munched straight off the cooling rack! This beginner-friendly book contains all the choux pastry and éclair recipes you need to get started, along with tasty filling combinations and colourful cake decorating ideas.

Bestselling author and former Great British Bake Off finalist Ruth Clemens will show you that you don’t have to be a classically trained French pastry chef to make delicious cream cakes for any occasion, including celebration bakes to share. These cake designs look great but are easy to follow and quick to make, with step-by-step advice on piping choux pastry and making sugar flowers and other embellishments to decorate your bakes.

Discover how easy it is to make fresh éclairs at home, with simple recipes and techniques that you can recreate with ease. Then take your skills to the next level and create all sorts of other choux pastry shapes, including buns, hearts, towers and rings so you can make delicious desserts such as profiteroles, allumettes, choux cheesecake and more.

So whether you fancy rustling up a batch of classic chocolate eclairs or attempting the construction a Croquembouche the size of the Eiffel Tower you’ll find all the tips tricks and recipes you’ll need right here.
