St Honore Gateau

Base is puff pastry but sometimes tart dough is used. Rings of
choux are piped around the puff. Cream puffs are piped onto the
same sheet. Bake the pieces until they are done (the creampuffs
will be taken off first). Fill the cream puffs with pastry cream
and then dip in caramel. Fill the base with Creme St. Honore enough
to cover the choux (8 ounces pastry cream: 2 ounces whipped whites).

Cover the pastry cream with whipped cream using a st. honore tip
(using a paper pastry bag). Pipe a thin layer of whipped cream
around the edge of the base to stick the cream puffs into. Chocolate
shavings may be put on the middle of the cake.
