Baking Challenge

Choux Pastry Gateau

Have fun giving your creation a name and please describe your recipe.

Salted Caramel St. Honore de Wisconsin.

Tell us about your creation's final texture after baking. Are you happy with it?

The choux pastry, creme patissiere, creme chantilly, and salted caramel all tasted delicious. Unfortunately, the caramel crystallized a bit, so it didn't have the shine I was hoping for.

Detail how you added a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or presentation.

All of the dairy and eggs used in this creation were Wisconsin made. Thank you, Sassy Cow Creamery! Also, the choux puffs decorated the gateau with a Wisconsin "W".

How did you do?

It’s not pretty, but it’s edible.
