First make the choux pastry. In a saucepan heat the water and milk together to boiling point.
Add the butter, a piece at a time, and stir until melted.
Remove the pan from direct heat and whisk in the flour.
Return the pan to the heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the dough stops sticking to the side of the pan.
Remove the pan from direct heat and beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing each egg in thoroughly. Set aside and cover with cling film.
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas 6.
Roll out the puff pastry finely. Cut out a pastry disc 25cm in diameter. Use a fork to make a hole in the centre of the disc.
Place the pastry disc on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.
Using a piping bag with a smooth nozzle, pipe little crowns of choux pastry around the edge of the disc and a choux pastry spiral in the centre.
On a separate lined baking sheet pipe the remaining choux pastry to make a batch of 5cm profiteroles.
Bake the pastry and profiteroles for 30 minutes until golden and risen.
Meanwhile, place the caster sugar in a heavy-based saucepan. Heat the sugar until dissolved into a syrup then bring to the boil without stirring and cook until the mixture caramelises, turning a light golden colour.
Dip the freshly baked profiteroles in the liquid caramel, then invert them and place them on a lined baking sheet to cool.
Meanwhile, gently fold the whipped cream and crème patissiere together and mix in the Grand Marnier if using.
Using a piping bag, Fill the profiteroles using some of the whipped cream mixture and fill the main cake with the remainder.
Place the caramel-glazed profiteroles around the diameter of the pastry disc, reserving 3 for the centre. Serve.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
