Our chef showed us of how to make swan before,
but we did not have time to try it in class,
yesterday I made my very first swan,
they are kind of easy to make..

Bread Flour 150g
Eggs 4
Milk 20ml
Water 200ml
Shortening 100g
Salt a pinch

1- Boil milk, water and shortening
2- Add bread flour and salt, stir with a wooden spoon, when the dough starts to form and the bottom of the pot show, remove from heat
3- Use a eggbeater to cool down the mixture to about 65'C
4- Add egg one at a time
5- Ready to pipe, Bake 400'F 20-25min

For Swan piping, the body will be a shell, the neck will be a question mark, be sure the neck take shorter time to bake, around 15min

To assemble the Swan, cut off the top of the shell, and divide the top part into 2 small pieces as wings

Whipping Cream 250ml
Sugar 2 Tsp
Vanilla 2 drops
