This cute little cake is called Religieuse, meaning ‘Nun’ in English. It is made of two sizes of choux (cream puff), bigger at the bottom, and the colorful butter cream decorated around represents a collar of their shirt.

In French this cake is one of the most common cakes you will see in the display case (perhaps displayed next to eclaire), but it’s not traveled so well outside of the country. Even in Japan where pastries are heavily influenced by French, this cake just started to get popular in the last 1~2 years.

Because of its cute shape, you don’t feel like eating it?

I made two types of flavor – vanilla and chocolate. It became sweeter than I thought!  But still yummy!
