ICED CHOUX BUNS

ICED CHOUX BUNS RECIPES

There is nothing I love more than Choux, its my favourite of all pastries to work with and last week I made some iced choux buns for a going away party in work. I think everyone in work liked them aswell as the girls in Joanne's office so whilst I am looking after what I eat, I think I am finally able to make desserts for others now without tasting what I have just made. Trust me it takes alot of my will power and determination not to eat them.

Notes

Glaze
In a wide saucepan over a low heat, gently warm the fondant to make it easier to work with. Stir in water until evenly combined. One at a time, dip the top of each choux into the mixture to glaze. Place on a board or rack and allow to set in the fridge before serving.
