These Halloween themed Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats are great fun to serve your children at this time of year. Easy to make and your kids could even help decorate them!
It is semi finals week on the Great British Bake Off and with that brings patisserie week. Do you have your favourite to win the series yet? Having read up on tonights show, I decided to have a go at making some Choux Buns which is the signature round this week. Rather than make 24 identical choux buns, I thought I would make some Halloween inspired buns instead: Halloween Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats. Therefore, I opted to make 10 Mummy Eclairs and 10 Choux Bats (for some reason my recipe made 20 choux buns instead of 24!).
So Patisserie week has ended and as usual you have all baked so hard and joined in with some delicious looking and sounding recipes. All together 22 patisserie inspired bakes were linked up and now it is time to decide who will be this weeks Star Bakers.
Patisserie week always feels me with a little dread because it requires a lot of daintiness and neatness, qualities I do not possess. So when I saw that this week’s GBBO involved making either
*Three tiers of choux pastry eclairs filled with creme pat
I decided to go with what I thought would be the easiest : Mokatines.
So welcome to the penultimate Great Bloggers Bake Off round up, otherwise known as week 9. This week was all about patisserie and the bakes were split as follows:
Siganture : Baklava
Technical : German Schichttorte
Showstopper : Elegant Entremets
Welcome to Week 9 of the Great Bloggers Bake Off and it is semi finals of the Great British Bake Off already – eeeeeek just one week left. I feel a bit sad……..but not as sad as the fact that there is still no cake baking!!!
