Strawberry Lemon eclairs

 Choux is one of my (most) favourite dessert. It's fun to make, beautiful and delicious!.


This time my choux pastry comes in shape of an eclair, well, eclair or choux cream are base on choux pastry, but what makes them different is the shape. When the original for the word Choux is mean "Cabbage", and Eclair is mean "Lightning" .
I filled inside of it with lemon, strawberry cream that sweet, tangy and fragrance at the same time ^^. Beside from the taste, it's cute, with lightly pink colour, white, red and yellow, (esp. when cutting it in half). If you can find small size strawberries, they are lovelier for decorating the top of the eclair. 
I always use my finger to taste the texture of the choux pastry but you can use your way to taste it, as long as it suits your style.
