BOY OR GIRL? GENDER REVEAL ECLAIR

Sprinkle little fun with these cute little gender reveal eclairs to break the news! It’s such a sweet way to share fun news.

1

Make Pastry Shell

In a medium saucepan, boil water, butter, sugar and salt on high heat.

2

Add Flour

When the mixture is boiling, add the flour & mix everything. The dough will start to form into a ball. Keep mixing for another 3-4 mins until light crust forms on the bottom of the pan.

3

Mix the Dough

Transfer the dough into a mixing bowl & mix it for a few mins on low speed until the mixture is at room temperature.

4

Add Eggs

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. This will help to get egg absorbed into the dough quicker.

5

Pipe the Pastry

Transfer the batter into a pastry bag & pipe into 4-inch strips 3 inches apart. Level peaked tops with wet fingertip.

6

Bake 

Bake for 30-35 mins, or until the shells are puffed up & golden brown. Let it cool, then make a small slit on the sides, or on the bottom of the eclairs.

7

Make the Filling

in a mixing bowl with whisk attachment, pour heavy whipping cream & whip until soft peaks.

8

Add Ingredients

Add sugar, vanilla extract and food coloring & beat until hard peaks form. Don't overbeat, or cream will separate.

9

Pipe the Filling

Transfer the filling into a pastry bag with a small round tip & fill the pastry shells.

10

Prepare the Glaze

Melt the candy melts in separate microwave safe bowls according to package direction. Dip half of eclairs in pink & the other half in blue candy melt, making sure to cover any filling peeking through the slit.
