Recently my colleagues have been boorrowing recipe books from the library. wow... flip & flip through those yummy cakes & pastry makes me more into this hobby.

These recipe books were all tag with post-it by them for copying. Me too copy quite a few recipes for my reference.

This cream puff recipe was from 1 of the book. It was a sure to keep recipe beacuse there are pictures on the steps & also consider a successful attemp for the 1st time.

I use my whipped cream to mixed with coco powder for the filling, the puff was crispy when out of oven, after cooled, i piped in the chocolate cream & keep in the fridge.

These puffs were soft, yummy & well receiving from colleagues & family ^-^
