Olivia's Croquembouche

Olivia’s Croquembouche

Here it is, a towering, nearly four foot high croquembouche with rice paper peonies.

I was approached by a bride to make a croquembouche for her wedding in September 2014.

This croquembouche is very beautiful and was a real talking point.

The peonies are are made from rice paper with pearl centres.

This huuge croquembouche is actually a fake. As the croquembouche was to be on display all day, it could not contain fresh ingredients. I therefore made four hundred chocolate profiteroles to be served as a dessert for the wedding pudding course.

The event was a great success!
