Swans are so graceful and elegant and pretty (from a distance, let's not talk about the up-close and personal). Pastry cream is possibly one of the most delicious inventions on the planet; you could top a pizza with it and I'd dive right in. I'd like to see these floating on a little stream of champagne and it would be a perfect tableau.
Though these puffs look a slight bit terrified, I still find them comforting. Can't you just imagine them bobbing around in a big mug of hot chocolate with their big eyes and whiskers melting away? Mmmmm, creamy Totoro puffs!
