Something Different - "Let them eat Croquembouche"

I don't know how many of you are Celine Dion fans, but I am a big one and one thing I loved about her wedding was her amazing wedding cake that was actually Croquembouche. Croquembouche is a wickedly delicious french dessert that means "crunch in the mouth". It is generally served piled high in a cone shaped and is bound together with caramel. To make it more sinful, sugared almonds, chocolate, ganache or macaroons can be added. Hope you ladies enjoy and may want to try something different at your wedding!

I was seriously considering getting a croquembuche as a groom's cake because FI is often disappointed by cake and LOVES cream puffs.  These days, though, we have been cutting stuff from the budget left and right and I don't think we can afford it :(

I was thinking of having my friend (an aspiring pastry chef) make a tiny one, but I don't know if they'll cover all of that stuff in her culinary program by then.  I feel bad too because she is the only bridesmaid who lives nearby, so I'll be working her nonstop already :)  I guess I can always ask to see what she thinks.
