This weekend hundreds of cyclists will be lining up to take part in Paris – Brest – Paris. It is sure to be an amazing time for them as they attempt such a historical race.
Now perhaps you haven’t done the training or the qualifying rides to be able to take part? Never fear here at Rocket Fuel HQ we have a way for you to enjoy this historical race.
We present to you the Paris -Brest cake!
It is made in a circle shape to look like a bicycle wheel and was invented by a baker who had a store on the route and wanted to help celebrate the great race.
Made from choux pastry with a cream filling it has continued to be a favourite treat ever since.
You can find the full recipe and how to on the Joy of Baking
