But I don’t live in France, nor do I know anyone who does nor do I live near a bakery that sells this type of dessert. So I shall be bold today and make puff pastries and pretend they a Croquembouche. Lame, I know.
If you’re looking at an opulent cake that’ll be the centre of attention, don’t hold back on the size and design. This Marie Antoinette-inspired masterpiece is an absolute showstopper with rich, ornate details. On a side note, I wonder how many can this confection actually feed. It’s huge!
