Creme Patissiere or Pastry Cream is cooked with milk, egg yolks, sugar and thickened with cornstarch. With light body, it’s used for Cream Puffs, Eclairs, Trifle or Pudding. A little thicker, it becomes cream pie filling with flavors like vanilla, coconut, chocolate or banana.

Ice Cream and Frozen Custard base has egg yolks and sugar but is richer with part milk and part heavy cream or all cream, depending on how decadent you desire. Add vanilla, chocolate, fruit, nuts, caramel, and endless combinations of ingredients.

Creme Bavaroise or Bavarian Cream has milk and heavy cream, egg yolks and sugar. It’s thickened with gelatin rather than cornstarch. Whipped cream is folded into the cooled custard for an airy but more firm texture between cake layers. Set in a mold or small bowl it’s often served with fresh fruit, chocolate curls or both.
