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.
