Only one thing in our minds for sure. Eat, eat, and more eating. Then there is a ton of catching up on our usual girl.. (oops ladies now).. lady talk. That got me going through my travel photos and I have so many that I have yet share here in my posts. So slowly, I will try to draft posts differently and hopefully make it a more interesting read.
If you are interested to know, the photo above is a masterpiece though it's depicted from a famous artist's work. I was walking along the Yarra River, Southbank, down at Melbourne CBD, and stumble upon this guy who drew quite a number of art work on the pavements. Though the photo above has been slightly washed off by rain, you could see how much heart, tears and sweat was put into that single canvas of art work. Plus it's not paint. Hand drawn with chalks. AWESOME!!
You must be thinking, how is my custard cream puff related to the photo above? Well, there is no relation at all. However would it help that every where I go, or which ever country I am in, I would just walk into a bakery and get myself a custard cream puff or profiterole? This is one of my absolute favourite treats. I loved it as a kid and still love it till this day. Since I know how a cream puff should taste like, I sure hope you will enjoy this recipe of mine.

When I served it to my family, particularly my dad's first words uttered were "wow girl! this reminds me of the cream puff I had in London during my younger days". To know I jolted my dad's memory is fantastic.
After all I am really fussy about how my custard cream puff should taste like. Though it's a basic choux pastry; if baked perfectly, and filling is flavoured well, a simple custard cream puff could send fireworks into your brain. Plus, custard cream puffs should always be served fresh on the day itself. For additional kick, make sure to coat it will real good semi-sweet chocolate. Custard Cream Puff to me will always be a simple, classy light treat.
Have a good weekend y'all!!
