My last cooking class for the year . . .
But not French Croquembouche
A forest of cream puff towers
Made, not by dipping the cream puffs in caramel
but rather in Royal icing
Made into towers and decorated
by the six class members
It was a hand ons class.
Each attendee got a plate, a box of cream puffs and a bowl of Royal Icing
They built and they decorated
And the result . . .
Some red and green chocolate candies
And a dusting of cocoa
Not quite so pyramidal
we did call this a Kroquembush!
Decorated with red and green sprinkles
Peppermint candies, red and green balls and a shower of red and green sprinkles
Red and white -- peppermint candies and red sprinkles
Green sprinkles and a "cherry" of a chocolate candy on top!
Chocolate covered candies and a shower of cocoa
Our little Kroquembouche forest . . .
Each student got to take their masterpiece home.
It was a fun class and the first "hands on" class that I've taught.
Alas, it's the last class of the year.
I simply adore teaching classes at life+style right here in our little town on the prairie.
And when you're going to demonstrate a real croquembouche and the sugar keeps crystalizing,
you turn to Plan B -- and rename it!
