My first attempt at making a Croquembouche!! Admittedly, they’re mini ones, and they’re stacked on top of cupcakes, but I’m so happy with how they turned out! And they taste pretty good (I’m not a big profiterole fan but these are okay).
It was actually pretty easy to make this cake (and it only took me a couple of hours!) but, I know if I was making a big Croquembouche, then it would taste forever (I’m assuming but I won’t know until I actually make one).
The cupcake is just a bog-standard vanilla cupcake but they taste really good, too – nice and moist (I don’t know if I love or hate that word…). The caramel on the Croquembouche bit has gone nice and crunchy – I like it, but I don’t know if that’s supposed to happen with a Croquembouche. Oh well. The next picture isn’t a picture of the finished cake but I was so pleased with my piping, that I had to share it 😀
I’m thinking I might take a break from the challenge at some point and make a huge one. I really wanna see how that turns out!!
