Swan chouxSwan Choux Pastry

Ain’t these swans pretty?!!

Swan choux pastry is something that i have always wanted to do, but put it off till now all because i was too busy. Finally found some time to get this done and did it with the family’s favourite durian whipped cream filling. The alluring smell and creamy taste of the durian is perfect for us durian lovers.

i would say this is a pretty simple dessert to whip up and stores pretty well. You could just bake them, cool and freeze the pastry to use another time. Ok! Now to the recipe.

Recipe

Makes 35-40 Swans depending on piped size
