Masterchef Croquembouche (retox).
SERVES: PREP: COOK: PRINT CONVERSIONS
/* */

I’ve always wanted to make a croquembouche, even long before Masterchef put them back on the culinary radar.

Traditionally, a croquembouche is served at weddings, baptisms, and first communions. So when we were recently invited to a friend’s son’s christening, I jumped at the chance and enthusiastically offered my services.
I had fun making this. Seriously. I split the work over two days – making the creme patissiere and profiteroles one day and filling them, making the caramel and assembly on the day of the party. It’s a crazy idea to set about this task in just one day.
I followed the Masterchef recipe but made my own cone using 200 gsm cardboard and lined it with baking paper.
It was a huge success, I especially loved watching everyone chip away at it at the party. And, Matt Preston, my caramel definitely had that crunch you were after. Magnifique!

    It will make the perfect birthday cake VixenLily. I'd make it for you but I'm sure that I want to see another profiterole for a while..

    Aww shucks, Off the Peg. Thank you.

    That looks bloody amazing! I'm really impressed. Given there was an attempt at a croquembouche at the Bakeoff a few years ago, which ended up looking like more of a stack of pikelets, I can appreciate the talent. Nice one :D

  5. Found your lovely blog via Windsor Deli- it's gorgeous!
    Had to laugh at this post…especially the bit where you mention that it is traditionally served at Weddings.
    It reminded me that I had it at mine….only I made it myself. What the??!!!
    At the time I didn't think anything of it but now I look back and am just kind of flabbergasted- seriously….what kind of nutjob attempts a croquembouche for the first time at her own wedding?????!!!!
    With little violets from the garden and all…it was really very spectacular. Lucky that!

  6. That looks awesome! You could also feed a million people with it, great work!
