February 2nd is National Cream Puff Day and what better way to celebrate than with a supersized cream puff cake. Even if you're not much of a baker, this recipe from the 'Bake. Eat. Repeat' blog provides a simple and delicious day to indulge in the annual foodie holiday.

Cream puffs, also known as profiteroles, are small balls of French choux pastry that are filled with custard or cream. Instead of making small pastries, this recipe involves making one giant choux pastry that will serve as the base of the cake. The inside of the cake is then stuffed with a cream filling and homemade lemon curd. To balance the tart flavor of the lemon curd, the cake is finished with fresh strawberries and a little bit of granulated sugar.

This recipe provides a fun and unexpected way to celebrate National Cream Puff Day.
