Step 6

In the meantime, make the pastry cream.

Step 7

Step 17

Pour ¾ of the icing over top the pastry. Spread evenly with an offset spatula.

Let dry for about 15 minutes.

With a sharp, serated knife, carefully trim the edges of the pastry cleaning the knife after each cut, and finally, cutting the single Napoleons.
