My baking instructor in culinary school described pastry cream as "the most outrageously decadent pudding you will ever eat" — and she's totally right. While I could certainly eat it by the spoonful, pastry cream is really intended as a filling for things like cream puffs, éclairs, and Boston cream cupcakes. Here's how to make it at home.
Home made custard creams. Easily turned into giant custard creams! Maybe add a little milk as was really crumbly and hard to roll out. Custard buttercream was yum though and would be delicious on a banana or apple cupcake
