    My mum has always told me that eclairs are hard to you think this takes a while to perfect or will they turn out great on the first attempt?

    I was just out on the web looking for this recipe, that is too weird. Thanks for the post. My daughter wants me to try and make these, I confess to never having tried before. I am up for anything however, so I will give it a try.
