You can make cream puff cake ahead of time. Up until you add the whipped cream, this can be covered and placed in the fridge up to 24 hours in advance. If you don’t want to mess up the whipped cream with Saran Wrap, just leave that off until right before serving.
To make the crust, boil the margarine and water in a pot. Add flour and mix well. Remove from heat and add eggs – ONE AT A TIME (this is important). Mix well and spread into a greased 9×13 dish.
