  1. Looks good I guess I’ll have to try it We call cream puffs

  2. If you don’t have cream up your nose, you’re not eating it right.

  3. Looks delish! I wonder if we Americans could use Marzipan for the almond paste . . . is it the same thing? What do you think?

  4. Marzipan and almond paste are different things. You can buy the Odense brand almond paste here in the US. Here’s my recipe for semlor – though I am totally adding cardamom this year!
