Seems like it was just yesterday when I was scratching my head at the Suet Steamed Puddings that Daring Bakers had us cooking up for the April challenge. Time has passed so quickly! I'm glad to say that this month's challenge was a no-brainer for me. I love working with caramelized sugar. Plus, I get really excited over French pastries; making them, eating them, looking at them- I love it all. I can see why the French use this as a traditional wedding cake. It's delicious and so elegant!
The May 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Cat of Little Miss Cupcake. Cat challenged everyone to make a Piece Montée, or Croquembouche, based on recipes from Peter Kump’s Baking School in Manhattan and Nick Malgieri.
