St. Honoré Cake
Type Cake
Place of origin France
Main ingredients Puff pastry, choux pastry, cream puffs, caramelized sugar, chiboust cream, whipped cream
Cookbook: St. Honoré Cake 

The St. Honoré cake is named for the French patron saint of bakers and pastry chefs, Saint Honoré or Honoratus (d. 600 AD), bishop of Amiens.

This classic French dessert is a circle of puff pastry at its base with a ring of pâte à choux piped on the outer edge. After the base is baked small cream puffs are dipped in caramelized sugar and attached side by side on top of the circle of the pâte à choux. This base is traditionally filled with crème chiboust and finished with whipped cream using a special St. Honoré piping tip.[1]
