The previous post – Croquembouche success – ends on a lovely note of chocolatey happiness.
The next misson was to transport this beautiful beast from Lancaster to North Yorkshire, through the Yorkshire dales on a sunny day.
This was the result
SADNESS ALL ROUND. But as Jess’s Messes has always preached, it is all about the flavour, not just the look. In this case it also worked, as it was devoured incredibly quickly by all people celebrating my auntie’s birthday. I wish it was more beautiful though…. At least it’s a story, and I know next time, get people to come to me for the croquembouche, not the other way around!
