Happy B-day to me

I stop counting after my 30s. I wanted to try the famous Paris-Brest (here). The pastry was created in 1910 by Louis Durand to commemorate the bicycle Paris-Brest-Paris tour. The round shape is representative of the bicycle wheel. 
The Paris-Brest is a round shaped pâtisserie made of pâte à choux filled with praline cream, sprinkled with sugar (you can also find in some pâtisserie Paris-Brest with flaked almonds). It's heavy but smelt on your tongue. 

For the kiddies, chocolate macaron with chocolate cream and raspberry touch.

Happy B-day to me!
