INSTRUCTIONS:

Pastry Cream

  • Heat your milk and vanilla over medium heat.
  • While that is warming, whisk your sugar and cornstarch together until fully combined.
  • Add full egg and egg yolk to the mixture and combine.
  • Slowly add a few tablespoons at a time of your hot milk (up to 1/4 cup) slowly while whisking consistently. When your 1/4 cup is incorporated, you can pour the remaining milk into the bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Pour mixture, while the liquid comes to a boil. It will go from very thin to thick quickly so you want to keep your eye on it. Once thick, continue to cook for a couple minutes more in order to remove any starch taste.
  • Chill until ready to use.

Icing Sugar

  • Mix powdered sugar and milk a tablespoon at a time. You want your icing to be thicket then you’d normally like it so it sets and doesn’t run off the pastry.
  • Place icing in two separate bowls and color one purple and one pink.

Cat Tail

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and place parchment paper on your baking sheet.
  • Take one sheet of puff pastry and roll out.
  • Take 1/4 cup of your pastry cream and spread it over the pastry. You want this to be a very thin layer so the cream doesn’t run out of the pastry.
  • Chop your chocolate chips and spread over the pastry.
  • Fold pastry in half so the short ends are touching, and using a pizza cutter cut into five slices.
  • Take one strip and while holding both ends with each hand twist once and lay on your baking sheet. Do this four more times.
  • Bake for 20 minutes and let completely cool on a cooling rack.
  • Once cooled, using a pastry bag or spoon drizzle icing one color at a time over the pastries. Let set for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
