piece montée



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.



My version is simply a stacked profiterole, filled with coffee custard. I chose not to include the caramel because my oldest daughter just got orthodontics. So not only would I be torturing her to include the stuff, but I would assured even more bills from the crafty orthodontist.

I also made the same combo. You really can't go wrong with coffee and chocolate. Your puffs look so adorable. I just want to pick one up and give it a hug.... and then eat it of course.
