New Trend: Cream Puffs

March 11, 2010 at 6:08 pm 3 comments

While walking around the Marina and Cow Hollow neighborhoods of San Francisco with my friend Teplyn, we stumbled across a new trend in desserts: cream puffs.  Pacific Puffs looks like a standard cupcake boutique, complete with a glass display case and sleek interior.  They have classic, chocolate, and fruit cream puffs, all with an option of a dusting of powdered sugar.  YUM!

Here is a description of the classic cream puff:

Pacific Puffs’ signature classic cream puff consists of a freshly baked choux pastry puff filled with a light and sweet mixture of vanilla custard and whipped cream, topped with a thick chocolate glaze.

I didn’t try one because I had just devoured chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream with warm peanut butter on top at Ghirardelli Square (yes, even I have limits on my sugar-intake).  Next time I’m in the neighborhood, a visit to Pacific Puffs is at the top of my list!

Thanks Teplyn for the picture!
