Clouds of Joy


This piece of heaven can be found at the Wisconsin State Fair. It’s a gigantic puff pastry baked to perfection, with clouds of real whipped cream in the middle. Powdered sugar is generously sprinkled on top.


You can watch the pastry chefs through the window at The Original Cream Puff Pavilion. They turn out batch after batch of these delectable delights. Stand in line, buy a cream puff for $4.00, and devour it at the stand-up tables in the pavilion. Then get back in line, and buy a box to take home.


When I ate a cream puff at the Fair, I looked like this: a delighted four-year-old version of myself. What a sweet, satisfying treat!
