Quick Reference

A croquembouche is a spectacular cone-shaped confection constructed of scores of small choux-pastry buns. In France it traditionally forms a centrepiece at celebrations such as weddings and first communions. The whole edifice is usually glazed with caramelized sugar—hence the name, literally ‘crunch in the mouth’.
