Gateaux St. Honore

This is a marvelous way to end the day. Simply take your leftovers and prepare this delicious and creative cake. This way you never have to waste any delectable pastry or goodies. This cake is in honor of Saint Honore who is the patron saint of bakers. The base of the cake is made from puff pastry scraps or quick puff; 1/16" to 1/8" scraps, heavily docked. The walls of the cake are built with choux paste; profiteroles dipped into caramel and glued on with caramel sugar. This is also referred to as an Alsacienne Tart.
