Speaking of French Weddings....

Croquembouche comes from the French words "croquant" meaning crunchy and "bouche" for mouth (Pronounced crow-come-bush) French for "cracks in your mouth." A cone of cream puffs filled with French pastry cream. Coated with carmelized sugar and decorated with elegant marzipan roses made petal by petal. Popular in France for weddings, communions and other occasions.

The croquembouche is often the dessert at a French wedding, baptism, christening, and other family gatherings. Its origins date back to the medieval tables of the French Royalty and Nobility. Croquembouche is decorative enough to be a centerpiece, and small enough to be suitable at even small dinners.

The dress by special order!
