I'm making eclairs for a shower that starts at 11am, so I'd like to do as much as possible in advance. I definitely plan to fill them the morning of the shower so they don't get soggy, but I'm wondering if I could get away with icing the baked, unfilled pate a choux the night before? Do you think the icing would make them soggy / would they collapse without the structural support of the filling?
