6 Incredible Cakes Ideas For Your French Wedding
Contrary to what you might imagine, a classic french wedding cake is nothing like your typical cylindrical layers of squishy goodness. Also known as the croquembouche, the traditional french wedding cake looks like a conical mound of pastry balls. Each pastry ball is a chou à la crème that contains custard, whipped cream, or even ice cream. Threads of caramelised sugar keep the individual choux together.|
A tall tower or a series of petite ones
Tall mounds never fail to make an impression. A tall croquembouche befits your towering ambitions and expectations in your relationship—sweet, yet sturdy. On the other hand, you can give your croquembouche a twist by creating smaller mounds and then piling each mound on top of the other. Regardless of your design, a croquembouche will be a sight to behold during your wedding party.
An adornment of pretty flowers
A layered cake of macarons
A kaleidoscope of colour
Just like choux, you can add food colouring to each piece of macaron so that the final product better suits the theme of your French wedding. You can also arrange the macarons to form colourful patterns when seen from afar!
