After being inspired by the tv show The Great British Bake Off that was recently on the BBC, my friend and I decided to create the great croque-en-bouche (also spelt croquembouche - not actually sure which one is correct!). Despite a few (semi!) disasters along the way, which you can read more about on my blog post, we were very pleased with the end result.



Not quite the elegant creation of the french masters of pastry but, hey ho, for a first attempt I'm pretty pleased Smiley

The recipe that we used - more or less - was this one: http://www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/recipes/croquembouche
And for more photos and a lot of background story - inlcuding the mishaps, check out my blog post here:  http://thoughtsonbubblesandstuff.wordpress.com/2011/10/28/croque-en-bouche-or-tales-from-a-mutinous-kitchen/

I think it looks fabulous--how brave of you to attempt such an intricate looking dessert.  I'd probably be (briefly) stopped from eating it because it looks too nice!

Thanks for the nice comments guys. I have to say it was a bit of a sacrifice breaking into it.

And thanks for letting me know mrsfibble - I just couldn't find out which was the right one as they both came up frequently on search engines etc. Also, your avatar is mesmerising!
