It is technically May 23rd, but I’m blogging early as I won’t be able to blog until at least the 28th. I am heading to Glasgow Scotland in 4 hours (I need to go to sleep!) for a wee bit of whisky and a whole lot of fun. And I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajokull Volcano stays far, far away. And in volcano theme, I have made a volcano erupting delicious, vanilla, pastry cream, and flowing chocolate lava. Other people call it a croquembouche.
I have to apologize, but like I said, I’m leaving in 4 hours and would like to try to scrape out 2 hours of sleep. Therefore this blog is going to be quite short, as in this is it. Enjoy the pics and I will write more about it upon my return.
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.
