About this Event
Maybe you’ve seen this recipe's more famous cousin, the croquembouche, traditionally served as a wedding cake in France. It’s a pyramid or tower of choux puffs, each one filled with pastry cream, dipped in caramel and decorated with spun sugar. None of the elements of croquembouche are complicated, but here's a simpler, but no less fun, version that will wow your friends! This is a great activity for any special occasion - includng the upcoming holiday season. In this class, you'll learn:
- how to make the choux pastry base
- how to pipe or scoop the puffs evenly
- how to make Chantilly cream for filling the puffs
- how to make fondant for topping the puffs
- how to assemble the "pièce montée"
Each attendee will take home their own choux puff tower.
This class requires at least 12 people to run.
***Please note – no refund for cancellations made after December 4th 2022. Tickets are, however, transferable to another person after that date.
