Last night, I made my mini choux pastry that I got the recipe from this site, it’s called ‘kue sus’ in Bahasa Indonesia. Well actually, original size is quite big but I decided to make it super mini.
Hmmm… not really super mini but you can eat it with only one bite. You don’t believe me? Then you have to see closely the first picture 😀 Yup… it is not bigger than a head of tea spoon. The idea was to have something that you can eat in one go and the other reason was inside my Indonesian choux pastry, I put some vanilla cream. If I make it a bit bigger then one has to be careful to eat it because the cream itself could go all over the place, so… I think this idea is not bad at all 🙂
I am really happy with the pastries and also the pictures that I’ve taken. Honestly, taking picture of any kind of food is not my cup of tea, so when I saw the results I was almost jump and scream *silly beginner’s attitude* LOL!!! 😀 I like the simplicity of the photos and to know that the wild flower that I found along the way to Sickla Udde was really make the shot special *another silly thoughts* 😀
I made quite a lot of these but half of them finished within second 🙂 on the same night. But I managed to safe some for my friends that I met this afternoon and some for my parents in law to try. My friends said the taste was delicious, it puts smile on my face and yeah… next time will try to bring some more, hmmm… maybe with different variation which is coated with dark chocolate?! We will see 🙂 Don’t ask my biggest fan, he loves it so much and can’t help himself to not eat almost half of tray 😀 LOL!!!
My parents in law just now tried my cake and believe me, to see their faces and smile in their eyes made my day completely! Luckily, I have some which haven’t got any cream inside so we can make it more tomorrow. It is perfect to accompany having a cup of tea in the backyard or dessert for Saturday night dinner. It would be perfect in any way 🙂
I’ve plan to make it when we have house warming party in September and will make some more filling inside, maybe I’ll use chicken or meat with some vegetable, may I say mini burger?! 🙂
The recipe is quite easy to follow and thanks for the cake station to allow us to try it at home. Definitely I recommend anyone who think that baking is something impossible -it is including me- to try this and I’m sure you will have smile on your face for days hahaha 🙂 You might not make it as small as mine and that is one of the beauty of this pastry, you can use your imagination to create a form that you like the most.
It’s getting late and I have to stop but will see you again tomorrow! Nite nite…
