Chocolate Eclair - Large
Traditional French Choux pastry filled with fresh cream with glazed chocolate icing on top. A beloved Ferguson Plarre classic!
This cake has a 1 day lead time so if you do need to cancel this order, you will need to do so 3 days or more ahead of pick up.
Our 3 day policy is in place for the following reasons:
1. To allow enough time for any specific decorations to be ordered or hand crafted by one of our decorating specialists. The custom sugar work involved can take days of crafting, curing and painting once stock arrives from suppliers.
2. Our custom cake decorators are in high demand and their rosters are created weeks in advance to ensure we meet the needs for all of our customers and their custom cake orders.
Eclair is the French word for lightning. It is believed that the pastry received its name because it glistens when coated with confectioner's glaze. Regardless of their history, Ferguson Plarre is doing its bit in making sure they stay around for decades to come. The most common technique with eclairs is, unfortunately, to cut them in half and pipe them with fresh cream or custard. This results in the cream losing moisture and developing a hard 'crust' over the period of a day. Our way is to use a high quality choux pastry and leave the hollow shell intact by injecting every eclair with freshly whipped cream. This means that the cream stays as fresh as possible and doesn't dry out. See if you agree!
