your eclairs sound great, i enjoyed learning some information too, good post

It would be nice to be taking photos of the deer rather than our baking. I prepared mine only today so there was no room for error...I just crossed my fingers:D

I saw the deer before I read the post and thought you were going to tell us that the deer ate the eclair. haha

Parents and pastries. Seems a common theme. Fawns. I wish we had more deer here. My sheep scare them off.


They sound wonderful! Great job...too bad about the pictures.


Your eclairs sound delicious. Okay, I'll take the photo of the fawns. They look adorable.



Thanks Courtney.

I kind of like this idea of taking photos of something unrelated. After spending time focused on a dish, often I don't feel inspired to photograph it.

They probably would have done so, had they been given a chance, Lori Lynn.

I like deer, provided my vegetables and other beloved plants are protected from them.

I'll try and make up for the non-pictures next time, Claire.

Glad you like the little fawns, Paz. They look really cute.


As much as I love to bake, I would have a hard time focusing on the kitchen if there was precious wildlife just outside the door.

Cream puffs and assorted other pastries don't have to be innovative; classic is classic for a reason. I can tell by your fond recollections, Simona, that this challenge was sweeter than your photos could have conveyed.

Indeed, I love pastries, Susan and I hope to make more in the near future.
