Hubby's Birthday "Cake"

Hubby's birthday was in the midst of all of the holiday craziness but I surprised him with a "cake" made out of his absolute favorite dessert - profiteroles (aka cream puffs)!

Click HERE to view my previous post on how to make pâte à choux and pipe them into profiteroles. Allow to cool to room temperature.

Make pastry cream and chill. Click HERE for previous post with a pastry cream recipe.

Slice the profiteroles in half. Slice strawberries and place 2 slices on bottom pieces of profiteroles. Pipe some pastry cream on top of the strawberries and then replace top of profiterole.

Arrange filled profiteroles on a plate and dust with powdered sugar.

Light candles and sing Happy Birthday! :)
