French Croquembouche

Handmade, one of a kind -
Honeygo Beasley Cards by Cynthia Maniglia
 From Wikipedia: "One of the earliest forms of the wedding cake is the French Croquembouche. The legend of this cake says that a pastry chef, visiting medieval England, witnessed their tradition of piling sweet rolls between the bride and groom which they would attempt to kiss over without knocking them all down. The pastry chef then went back to France and piled sweet rolls up into a tower to make the first Croquembouche."

Thank you, Meg! I just sent this order off to Washington state for a woman who is a jeweler specializing in diamonds. Can't wait to see how she likes the cards. I get to preview them here! It's always sad to part with them, so at least I have the photos to share.

Bonjour Cynthia,
I too like yourself and Meg Mitchell, have fallen in love with all things french. I stayed in Paris for a month in October 2009 (a 50th birthday gift to myself)
Your cards are a work of art, delightful to receive and just waiting to be framed.
You have a gift and merci beaucoup for sharing it with us all.
Cheers
Judith

Thanks, Elaine - it's a one-of-a-kind card for a special friend in Washington state. Glad you like it!

From the BBC series on Paris, Blood and Chocolate (Part 2 of 3). Enjoy!
