The Croquembouche; a wedding dessert delight
Croquembouche was invented by the French pastry chef Antoine Careme back around 1783 to 1833. Over all these years the Croquembouche has retained the crown as the most popular wedding dessert in France.
The Croquembouche is constructed with the well known profiterolls (choux) which are filled with custurd cream, piled into a high pyramid
and encircled with caramelized sugar. These delectable profiterolls give the Croquembouche its name, which means: “ crunch in the mouth”.
The Croquembouche, towering in all its glory, is served as the center piece to the wedding (besides the bride and groom of course!). When the time comes for dessert, the lights are dimmed, some dramatic music plays and the bride and groom typically break off the first choux. Its like the cutting of the cake but in a traditional French style. Next the guests are invited to indulge in this fantasy dessert. You can be sure of one thing, its a wedding dessert your guests will never forget.
