Traditional French festive cake that is actually easier to make than it looks.
TO MAKE Crème Pâtissière
Boil the milk.
In a clean bowl beat eggs and sugar until the mixutre is thick and pale and then add the flour. Beat and add hot milk gradually until well combined.
Pour mixture in a saucepan and stir continuously on a low heat with a wooden spoon until thick. Stir in the rum.
Put in a bowl, cover and refrigerate.
TO MAKE Choux Pastry
Preheat oven to 175°C. Melt butter with water and salt and bring to the boil.
Add flour in one go and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth and doesn’t stick to the saucepan or spoon.
Transfer mixture to a large bowl and beat adding 1 egg at a time until mixture is thick and glossy.
Put mixture in a piping bag with a large nozzle and pipe 3cm rounds spaced 3cm apart. Place in the oven and cook for about 45 mins.
Once cooked and cooled, fill the choux with the crème pâtissière.
TO MAKE Toffee
Put sugar with just enough water to cover the sugar in a saucepan and stir until sugar has disolved. Without stirring allow to boil until colour is golden. Remove from heat.
Using tongs (to avoid burning your fingers), dip each choux in the toffee and build up a tower. When assembled add the sugared almonds randomly to the cake.

Step 6: Conclusions Now you're finished! A professional looking canvas at a very low cost. Here's a few notes that might help as well. If you are stretching a lot of paintings at once, it might be easier to cut all the wood at once but just make sure to keep the pieces together. If your painting is especially large then a cross brace or two may be necessary to create a strong frame. It is a matter of preference but generally if the painting is larger than 3 feet across then a cross brace would be a good idea. For this simply use a 1” x 2” strip cut square and staple it (on both sides of the frame) in the center. The should not be used for the brace pieces. Good luck with framing!

Step 5: Stretch the Canvas Now you are finally ready to stretch the canvas. To do this lay a piece of paper down on a clean surface, and then the painting face down. Line up the frame so that the molding is against the canvas. To stretch this pull one side of the canvas up and around and staple it in the center of that side. Next take the canvas pliers, stretch the canvas on the opposite side and staple in the center. Although this can be done alone, a second pair of hands might make this step a little easier. Flip the painting over and make sure that it lines up properly with the frame. If it does you can begin stapling the rest of these sides. On the one side of the sides with a staple in it, place two staples, approximately 2”-3” on either side of the center staple while stretching the canvas. Do the same on the opposite side of the painting. Continue to work your way outwards towards the corners, until there you are about 1” from the corner. Next repeat this process along the other two sides of the painting, stretching the canvas tight. When you have completed this you can fold the corners of the painting as you would a present and staple them to the strip in the back. It is a matter of preference if you want the folds on the top and bottom or sides of you painting but being consistent will make them look better.
