    Profiteroles, eclairs, puff cakes - once man could find them in tons of pastry shops, but they began to disappear one after another, like old book stores, and now one cam only find betting and lottery shops there, or strip clubs.

    And such poor offer of choux pastry.
    Once - several kind of glazings, caramelized sugar, icing sugar, milk chocolate coating, fondue in 2 colours and tastes (lemon and chocolate), and fillings og pastry creme,Bavarian creme, whipped cream, choco whipped cream, and - my favourite, old fashioned Parisian - mixture of 2 thirds of whipped cream and 1 third of creme fraiche. Usually dusted with icing sugar.

    To-day it's all vanished. Disappeared.

    If there is eclairs a all, they are filled with boring pastry cream, glazed with fondue and pastry is soggy as overcooked broccoli.

    Come to Germany, I think we have them quite often in bakeries (real ones not the fast things at train stations). It's called Brandteiggebäck

    Tiramisu isn't as fashionable. But it's widely available here in Orlando...and it always "picks me up".

    My wife is a Disney Pastry Chef and highly recommends her own "Cake-Pops"!

    Lord Chandos had two pastry cooks. During WWII, he was asked if one could be spared to serve in the war, to which he replied,

    "Oh damn it, can't a man have a biscuit?!"

    Indeed.
    On the other hand you can point me to a thread which I just "bumped". I normally try to contribute something 😉

    Plus I also dig up threads where I have been the last contributor before ...
