Top Review by culinarydisaster

While this recipe may turn out well if you figure out certain things, this is pastry cream and not bavarian cream. Bavarian uses no cornstarch and has gelatin in it. People who are looking for a good pastry cream may never find this good recipe under this name...they are going to miss out
