Until a few weeks ago I had never heard of Croquembouche. Oh, you haven't either? Well, it is a French dessert served at weddings. It is a high cone made of pate choux filled with pastry cream and held together with caramel and caramel threads. We decided to make one of these during our course over sugar. Although sugar is definitely not my thing it was a lot of fun to play with.

I only heard of this because a friend of a friend had this for her wedding...it looks like it was tough to make! I'm curious to try it. Happy Valentine's Day :D!
