Currently on a patisserie course and for an assessment I have to make eclairs. We were given a recipe for chocolate eclairs filled witg whipped cream. But in order to get the top marks we are allowwd to change the recipe. Anyone have any good recipes for flavours other than chocolate. Also I prefer a creme patisserie filling

The assignment I think is for chocolate eclairs but we have been told that we are allowed to make a pastry cream filling if we wish rather than whipped cream. How would I make them coffee flavoured and what glaze would go on top

Now I am thinking to make chocolate and hazelnut eclairs. I would make a creme pat filling and flavour it with hazelnut paste which I will make by putting praline in a processor. Then glaze the top with chocolate fondant. Would this work. Would the hazelnut paste be smooth enough. Don’t want any grainy texture.  I kneed to show creativity, flair and finesse. How could I do this
