Daring Bakers 10-12: Mille-feuille

Posted on

Here’s my take on October’s challenge at the Daring Bakers: mille-feuille. I’m not sure how to pronounce that, but I can tell you that it’s delicious! The thousand layers are made with 3 sheets of puff pastry (which are weighed down to make them more compact and sturdy), and 2 layers of pastry cream.

Layer cakes galore!

I definitely don’t write as many posts as I would like to. I bake at least two times a week and some things don’t make it to the blog. Some of them wouldn’t have been posted anyway because I didn’t get many pictures or because they were ugly (like the awesome strawberry milk whoopie pies from Sprinkle Bakes that I accidentally turned into strawberry milk shortcakes), but other times I just lack time to post them.

Making pudding from jelly and exciting news!

Ok so I’m sorry if you already knew this (in that case, you should have told me) but: you can make pudding from jelly mixes.

I was clearing my cupboard one day, and I found a box of nearly expired sugar free banana jelly. My first thought: seriously, who makes banana jelly? Banana is supposed to go on pudding, not jelly. So I thought I’d make pudding from it.
