Aspiring Bakers #34: Choux Party!

Small Small Baker/Aspiring Bakers

EDIT 1 Sep 2013: The Choux Party has ended! Thank you so much for all of your submissions! Do head over HERE for the roundup!

Hi everyone!

I've finally mustered up the courage and volunteered to be a host for an event - the Aspiring Bakers! Thank you Small Small Baker for giving me the chance to host the event. The theme I've chosen for this month (August) is CHOUX!

I'm sure choux is not something new to many of you out there! I would love to see all of your choux creations this month - cream puffs, swan puffs, croquembouche, ├ęclairs - and they can be filled with anything - pastry cream, whipped cream, ice cream, savoury filling... Do join me in the baking fun! All sweet and savoury choux - as long as the choux are made from scratch - will be accepted!

Who can join?
Everyone and anyone! Even if you don't have a blog, you are welcome to join too, just submit a photo and the recipe of your bake and I will post it in the round-up.

How to join?

Step 1:
Bake some choux  - choux must be home-made and not store-bought - and fill it with any desired filling. Or you can use the choux and assemble into a cake or other desserts. 

Step 2:
Blog about your choux recipe between 1 August 2013 to 31 August 2013.
Your post must include the recipe or link to the original recipe. If you are using a recipe from a book, please include the title of the book too.
Any entries that are posted outside the date range will not be accepted. 
Any entries that do not include a recipe or link to the original recipe will not be accepted too. 

Step 3:
Please mention that you are submitting your post to Aspiring Bakers #34: Choux Party (August 2013) hosted by Jasline of Foodie Baker and provide a link back to this post HERE.
Entries will not be accepted if the above is not included.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!

Try not to use the Anonymous option as I won't know how to address you and your comment will risk being flagged as spam - and as I don't check the spam inbox frequently, I may not see your comment!

Do use the "Name/URL" option (you can just type anything in the URL portion) so that I will know how to address you and it will also be easier for me and others to link back to your website!

If you have a burning question, do drop me an email at foodiebaker[at]gmail[dot]com, I'll try to get back to you as fast as I can!

Thank you once again for dropping by and have a great day ahead! :)


  1. Oh Jasline this sounds like so much fun! If I had time, I would have loved to try and bake the Ice Cream Bubble Crown I posted for Ice Cream Day. I hope someone else makes it. I'd love to see it!

    Thank you so much for hosting, I'm sure you will do GREAT!

    1. Hi Louise! I just made mini ice cream bubble crowns! Hope to be sharing them soon! :) Hope you'll take the time to participate too!

  2. Very cool! Cheers to hosting!
