Princesses are a dessert based on puff pastry. The preparation of puff pastry is one of the more demanding desserts, requiring a certain amount of pastry mileage.
To make the dough perfect, which will then be filled with the vanilla custard without eggs, two important tips must be followed: the ingredients and quantities of the recipe must be followed exactly, and the golden rule of pastry-making must be followed: do not open the oven door while the princesses are baking.
We usually fill the princess cupcakes with vanilla custard, but the list of ingredients includes eggs. The yolks create the creamy texture, but this can also be achieved without the use of eggs, thus satisfying the taste buds of those who, due to health or other restrictions, are not allowed to consume eggs.
Cornstarch is a common ingredient in many recipes as it acts as a thickener without altering the original taste.
The custard can then be topped with different flavours such as cocoa powder or fruit puree, and can be used to make other desserts such as ice cream, mousse or pudding, in addition to the princess filling.
