I'm designing a dessert table that features a croquembouche, so I thought I'd share a few inspirational images with you. If you've never seen a croquembouche (pronounced "crow come boosh"), then you're in for a treat. These towers usually feature profiteroles, which are cream-filled puff pastries. They're piled high in a pyramid shape and surrounded by spun sugar or caramel. Each little puff can be removed from the cone and eaten. This dessert is a traditional French wedding cake, but it's also common at baptisms and first communions.
Do you like the idea of a croquembouche for special occasions, or do you prefer traditional cakes and cupcakes?
