Swans & Paris-Brest

Cygnes (Swans)
  These might just be the cutest pastry I have ever made.  They are filled with pastry cream, fruits and whipped cream.  It's quite a lot of work for a little pastry.


This is a puff pastry ring filled with praline cream.  Interesting tid-bit about this dessert - it was created in 1891 to celebrate the Paris-Brest-Paris bicycle race.  The round shape represents a bicycle wheel.
