Matcha Azuki Bean T-Rex Choux Pastry (class + giveaway!)

When I first made dinosaur themed choux pastries, I was thinking to myself I should conduct a class on how to make them, particularly the chubby T Rex!

I decided to make a more naturally coloured version this time, show casing Matcha and Azuki bean flavours. If you are interested in learning how to make these cute dinos, please click on this link for more details and to register for the class.

This is also the first time we are doing a giveaway of a very useful baking item together with the class! I requested for this as I find that it makes a huge difference to use perforated baking mats when baking choux pastries. It helps to retain the shape of the piped batter much better than if you piped and baked on parchment paper or silicone mat as the little holes in the mesh helps to anchor the pastry as it rises in the oven during baking. For small pastry parts or plain round choux it doesn't really matter which surface you pipe on but for the "main body" of non-standard shapes or eclairs, it does. You will get to experience the use of the perforated baking mat in class and bring home a brand new one after the class! Perforated mats are also great for baking tarts, cookies and breads so it's not just for choux pastries!

With love,
