I got up and got right to it this morning. I had been thinking about the Croquembouche since I quit working on it Saturday and I was ready to just make the caramel and finish it.
I think in the end with all of the time and work I am thinking that I just like the cream puffs filled with the cream and that the caramel is just way too much trouble/mess unless you are doing it for a special occasion. I of course was just doing it to give it all away ... I don't want to put on 50 more pounds.
PS>the reason that my Croquembouche is not very tall is because I made 4 of them so it would be easier to give away instead of pulling it apart.
Today at 2:30 PM I have a Dr.'s appointment (for girly stuff) and then I am just waiting for Friday to see what is going to happen with my back. I hope that I get off all drugs and it gets fixed once and for all ... I think the Dr.'s move so slow but I guess they know what they are doing?
I just wanted to post the pictures of the Croquembouche and touch base with you. If I have any news later I will post again. Have a really great day ... signing off for now from 1HappyChef. :)
