Cream Puff Season

Nobody puts a Wisconsin State Fair cream puff in the corner



                                                     Meanwhile...
The Wisconsin State Fair begins on August 4 and so does talk of Bacon popcorn balls, Banana Split Cheesecake Squares and PBR Beercicles (my Aunt Agnes is licking her lips wherever she is).




Have a Pine Cone cream puff if you dare

It took three of us to dare. Could have been more, I dropped the monstrosity off elsewhere.



Don't forget me, you're pal the eclair

  1. Oh, you got me! My most favorite dessert - although the Europeans make this the best. Many thanks for sharing this with SEASONS and I'm hoping for another dessert next week! ( joking!)

  2. Oh, how I miss stuff like this! The 'cream' in pastry here in New Zealand tastes like air with some sugar on it. I would do a lot of things for a US eclair!

  4. I have never tried this (so sad). In our county fairs, we have fried Oreos, fried Snickers bars and fried Kool Aid.

  6. I'd like to try that, Jeanette. Actually pics of the monster eclair are forthcoming. I heard they had them at the Dane County Fair so will have to try them there. Maybe they're best in Milwaukee at the State Fair because of all those Germans.

  7. Lol, Betty. I really wussed out on both, especially since I'm not supposed to be eating dairy right now. Ha, and look what I get. I've counted four people that tried to polish off that cream puff so far.

  8. It wasn't as good as it looked, Deborah. I suppose they have to make compromises to make it that mammoth and make sure it keeps in the pastry case. The WI State Fair cream puffs are a different story. Normal sized and the best. Just the best. Yum.

  9. I've heard of fried Kool Aid, Ruth. You choose a flavor like cherry and make donut batter with it. I think the red color looks best and if I tried it I'd hope for watermelon.

  10. They have pretty good Italian sausages if you know where to go, Carol. Last time I went it was under the skyway. It must have been awhile ago because chocolate covered bacon was all the rage. I may go after some bacon popcorn balls this year.

  16. I'd give the cream puff six out of ten yums for difficulty, Rajesh.

  17. If you like bacon rolled in popcorn balls and dipped in chocolate and PBR frozen on a popsicle stick, Molly.

  18. Wish I could share it, Jedidja, four of us couldn't finish the monster. "Lekker", I like it and will try to work it into my vocabulary,

    1. They are impressive Heather, but nobody beats the State Fair cream puffs. I love molasses cookies, maybe I'll drop by and pick some up.

    1. It looks like a few other bloggers have done so, Indah. I don't know how to make the pastry but I bet it's great right out of the oven with home made whipped cream.

    Thanks for linking up with Life Thru the Lens. I look forward to more of your posts.
