May's Daring Baker's Challenge - Piece Monteé or Crouchembouche. Done with caramel and chocolate pastry cream, sugar cookie decorations and spun sugar.
The May 2010 Daring Baker's Challenge was to make a croquembouche--a tower of cream puffs.
The Daring Baker's May Challenge was a handful - of cream puffs that is! Croquembouche with a chocolate glaze that is better than store bought!
