*) The tonge-in-cheek, aristocratic sounding name of the lady-in-waiting
is an allusion to an Austrian pastry, the Schaumrolle:
Schaumrolle @ Wikipedia
"Schaumrollen, or Schillerlocken, are an Austrian confection. They consist of a cone or tube of pastry, often filled with whipped cream. Also called foam rollers, they are a bags or roll-shaped puff pastry, which is sweetened with whipped cream, or sometimes filled with an unsweetened cream puree."
Merisi's note: I do not know what "cream puree" is, but from what I understand, the alternate to whipped cream tastes like Italian meringue, made by slowly adding boiling hot sugar sirup to whipped egg whites. That makes a fluffy, sweet filling, and does not soften the puff pastry shell, unlike the whipped cream (the later is for immediate consumption).
