This article will focus on the éclair and look at the trends and tastes shaping the development of éclairs in the UK.

Leading high-end bakers will be asked about their recent developments in éclairs. What has inspired these products? What stands out about them in terms of the pastry and fillings.

Larger suppliers will be asked how developments at the highest end of the market (where a single eclair can cost more than £5) are filtering down to the mainstream. Supermarket retail ranges generally feature only the classic chocolate éclair – are they missing an opportunity by not widening their éclair offer?

The article will also examine what trends may develop the éclair market in the future.
