My clients wanted a very informal Wedding Reception with a bit of a twist. It had to be a modern, elegant and very sophisticated.
We made loads of individual Shepherds pies piped with duchess potato and the vegetarians indulged in individual vegetarian moussaka layered with love.
Whilst this was being served to all the guests we began the challenge of building a 3 ft croquembouche that was made up of 300 profiteroles and 10 kg of caramel. As people were coming to the bar they watched this tower of magic being built. Every pan of caramel had to be strategically planned to come off the stove at the right time to keep a steady flow of the building process.
A Croquembouche is a Classic French Dessert consisting of Choux pastry balls piped with pastry cream, piled in a cone and bound with threads of caramel. This is a very trendy alternative wedding cake and continues to produce the wow factor.
The evening was filled with acoustic singers, a live cover band that rocked the socks off everyone, some really good Champagne and guests dancing into the early hours.
Thanks for having us
