Croquembouche great alternative to Wedding Cake

A croquembouche or croque-en-bouche is a French dessert consisting of choux pastry balls piled into a cone and bound with threads of spun sugar and caramel, commonly served in Italy for Weddings and other religious special occasions. But gaining Popularity here in Australia.

We have experienced a great local baker from Crust Bakery with 5 store locations, whom made us a toffee  Croquembouche for a recent Wedding. He added an orange liquor to the custard filling, the taste was out of this world. I would order this again just for me to eat, it was lovely & so was Gary, to deal with.

We cannot sound his praise loud enough, he took on the order knowing the humidity may melt the toffee,where other bakers were too afraid to try (and these were the French bakers on the Sunny Coast whom were very rude I might add)

So don’t hesitate to contact Gary at Crust Bakery 0401-130-542  I call him the brave baker, he needs an award of some kind.  Please give him your custom, you wont be sorry.
