Strawberry Choux Cake by peaflockster

Since I’m having fun with the baking pictures…

This is a dessert we made for the previous week in class for our DUN DUN DUN…BAKING CHALLENGE. It is a cream puff (pate choux) with:

1st “Layer”: sliced apples baked in brown sugar

2nd “Layer”: pastry cream mixed with whipped cream

On the top are sliced apple skins that I cooked in a pan with white sugar (I guess you could say I “carmelized” the apple skins…?), and then drizzled over it all is caramel.
