I am trying to figure out the best way to shape my cream puff shells into a volcano shape for baking. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Welcome @Wendy! Have you made cream puffs before? – Kristina Lopez Nov 9 '12 at 2:53
Sorry, this may be a language issue, but what are your shells made of? Pate a choux, puff pastry, something else? – rumtscho Nov 9 '12 at 13:45

My mother used a large cake decorating sleeve for her pastries. She would squirt out a mound, and then cut the middle out after it was finished baking.
