Brest France and the dessert by the same name. Does the shape remind you of anything? A bicycle tire perhaps? This lovely dessert was created to commemorate France's oldest bike race. This particular race started in 1891 and bikers race from Paris to Brest.
Are you afraid of making pastry like this? Don't be! This choux pastry is a snap to whip up and pipe out (with the right piping supplies). I had a Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator until a few months ago when part of it snapped off. I went to the store today to pick up some decorating tips and bags but found a Wilton Dessert Decorator that is similar to the Pampered Chef tool. It worked for me so I am happy with the $12 I spent!
This turned out really well for many bakers this week so make sure to check out the LYL on the French Fridays with Dorie page. You can also check out the recipe in Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan.
