Croquembouche Monday, August 05, 2019, 11:40 AM


For Caroline's Party, Meredith (and later with help from her suster) made a Croquembouche. She used the choux and pastry cream recipe as she had in the past. She actually made the puffs Monday before the party and froze them. Then she made 2 batches of pastry cream on Saturday so it would be chilled and ready for filling.

Meredith filled the puffs the morning of the party while Brooke was making the caramel. Brooke did the assembly on the day of the party. There are a bunch of recipes out there for the carmel part (TODO: Add them?) but none are very specific. In fact, they do not have temperatures at all! So it was a bit of a guessing game. It did work, though was a bit hard.
