Croquembouche Wedding Dessert

No attempt will be made by me to get you to change your must-have wedding cake plans to something different. All that change and back and forth drama shall not be sponsored by me. However, I make no bones about it, this card is all about croquembouche. If you should decide to add this to the dessert table, then you are either on the right track or I have successfully cast my spell!
So, what the heck is a croquembouche? Firstly, it's a French phrase, croque-en-bouche, that is a uniquely French pastry dessert that is conical in shape and made up of dozens of sweet puff dough that is filled with cream and connected by sticky caramel.
Depending on the occasion, such as a wedding, it is quite common to decorate the sumptuous dessert with fresh florals, charms, and thread-like spun sugar. Also important is the pedestal on which the dessert is placed. Make it equally as luxurious as the dessert itself!
Fabulous dessert tables like this feature all the basics: wedding cake, croquembouche, French Macarons, and miniature strawberry shortcake. You can find a 5-star recipe here from Just A Pinch that will show you how to make it yourself. If you're not the least bit savvy in the kitchen, you could always fake it by using Costco puff pastries and covering in store-bought caramel sauce.

That second picture of the roses and cream balls on that silver platter is AMAZING
Wowww. I've never seen this at a wedding before, but I hope to soon! Just gorgeous, especially that second picture as @DaniaChicago said. I bet they taste good too!
I didn't even know what that word was. Never heard that before, but I have seen these types of desserts around the holidays
The way bakers spin caramel into such fine threads is remarkable.
I'm with you @daniaChicago. beautiful photos

How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
