Birthday Cream Puffs!

IMG_1650

Inspired by the neighborhood bakery from my childhood, Liliha Bakery, I made these cream puffs for my annual birthday karaoke get together!  Using a choux paste, vanilla pastry cream and a butter custard frosting (it has cooked eggs in it!), prep time was actually about an hour!  From start to finish, it took about 2.5 hours.  I took some inspiration from fruit tarts as well and layered some fresh Oregon Hood strawberries and organic grapes and mangoes on top of each puff.
