Learning to Croquembouche

Hello Lovely Friends,

I have always wanted to be able to make croquembouches and so I thought I would try and learn from searching the internet!

Here are pictures of my first two attempts.

The first one I made using a croquembouche cone which I left inside because I was too lazy to try and get it out.

Supposedly you can use the inside or the outside of the cone to construct the croquembouche.  I think next time I will use the inside of the cone.

The second one I made was constructed freehand as you can tell. J

I think with a few more practices I can get better. :) 

The really fun part for me though was decorating them with fondant. Next time I have to be more patient and let the croquembouche set before I decorate - I was very eager to see the end result!

Well, I will keep you updated on mastering the art of the croquembouches.

Have Fun!
