  1. Hello Rachida! The Millefeuille pastry that we get in the UK use a thin layer of strawberry glaze covered by a much thicker layer of sweetened whipped cream as the filling with fondant icing on top. These are known as cream slices here for this reason. Here are some pictures: https://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1600&bih=743&ei=31y6W-XNEMzJrgTY4Yv4DQ&q=cream+slices&oq=cream+slices&gs_l=img.3..0l2j0i5i30k1l4j0i8i30k1l4.1013.4177.0.4914.….0…1ac.1.64.img..1.12.1914.0…0.nRr44Q51AW4#imgrc=xvnM7e_toIdEfM:
    I have eaten the pastry cream (aka custard cream) filled ones in Paris. I prefer the strawberry & whipped cream version – its richer. Do try it out!
