Patisserie Week #GBBOBloggers2018 Week 9

It’s not often we go for the showstopper when we’re baking along with The Great British Bake Off, but Ant really wanted to try his hand at Mille-feuille, Chou and Pâté Sucrée pastries on patisserie week and I have to say, he did brilliantly.

I loved the mille-feuille and the chou buns and eclairs were delicious but the strawberry tarts were my absolute favourite.

*Edit* Ant was delighted to win Star Baker for his bakes this week. Thanks, Jenny and Helen, you made his day!

Ant used Ruby’s Mille-feuille recipe for the pastry.

He made the Chantilly cream by whisking 600ml Double Cream, 50g Caster Sugar and 1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract together until stiff.

For the Chou Buns / Eclairs, he used Kim-Joy’s Recipe, filled them with Chantilly Cream and dipped them in melted Milk Chocolate.

The Pâté Sucrée for the Strawberry Tartlets used a recipe from The BBC Food Website, for the Pastry. The filling is just halved Strawberrys and packet Glaze made using Strawberry flavoured water.

So next week it’s the final and I have to say, I’m going to be a bit sad to say goodbye to GBBO for another year!

    Well done for going for the showstopper. It was a lot of work, but they look great. I like the eclairs the best, they have a lovely rise. But all three sound delicious. Fab!
