Inspired by a conversation with one of my lovely followers on Facebook, I’ve put together a small collection of photos to show you some of the croquembouches I have made in recent times. Thank you to Linda for the inspiration!
Croquembouches are an eye-catching, traditional French dessert. Towers are built from profiteroles filled with cream or continental custard, and drizzled with chocolate or spun toffee…my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
The smallest towers I have made were constructed from 30 profiteroles or ‘puffs’. In building my tallest tower to date, I used 110 profiteroles.
My favourite croquembouche (not pictured) that I have made was for a wedding in Gympie. Frangipani flowers were incorporated into the tower, which was drizzled with white chocolate. Yum!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this collection of croquembouches!
