Croquembouche is a classic French dessert consisting of bite sized pate a choux balls filled with pastry cream. The crème puffs are piled high into a pyramid and topped with spun sugar. A Croquembouche can be found at most French (and Italian) weddings, baptisms or first communions. Croquembouch literally means Crunch in the mouth.
In this class, each guest would make their own small Croquembouch from scratch!
