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.
What a fun challenge. I made the classic version, vanilla creme pastissiere to fill and hard caramel to glue. The only thing non traditional was the shape I guess. At the end of the post you'll see my inspiration.
Ta-Da! I was inspired by an art project I made in high school, It's a sculpture made entirely out of disposable plastic cups.
