30 Jan Croquembouche Wedding Cake for a Special Wedding
Matt worked at Whare Kea Lodge for the Myer family before we started Pembroke Patisserie. We were honoured when Lucy & Justin asked if we’d make a croquembouche for their wedding cake.
Wedding cakes are not something we usually do, but for this gorgeous couple, we simply couldn’t say no! The croquembouche is a beautiful French dessert usually reserved for weddings and baptisms, consisting of choux pastry balls filled with crème patissière and stacked in a cone shape held together with caramel. They are often decorated with spun sugar and garnished with fresh flowers.
We also asked to supply pastries for the bridal breakfast and again for the recovery brunch on Sunday.
It was a superb Wanaka January day and the wedding venue looked absolutely stunning.
Congratulations Lucy & Justin!
