Croquembouche Improvements

As promised, I have dug up a picture of the Christmas Eve croquembouche disaster. Actually, my mom did. She wasn't able to come up with any photo of just the croquembouche. At the time she probably thought it would be best if this went undocumented. I think you can get this idea from the picture though....

If I hadn't pointed it out, you might just think that was a plate of cream puffs, instead of an attempted croquembouche. I'll repost the picture of my 2nd attempt at a croquembouche because I'm pretty proud of it and because that first picture is just pathetic.

And while we're on the topic of last Christmas (sort of), I found some pictures in my phone of the cake I made for Christmas Eve as well. I'm not sure why these never got posted to the blog, but now is as good of a time as any. This cake was more or less a total rip off of one that the very talented cake decorated at My Sweet and Saucy made and featured on her blog. I still have a very long way to go with my fondant skills, but I think they're improving somewhat.

Lovely croquembouche. Very professional looking.

Who eats all of this?

They were actually unfilled, so no one ate this croquembouche. But all my other baked goods get pushed onto friends, family, and coworkers.
