By a bizzare coincidence, on the same day I read the Krispy Kreme thread below, my fiancee was reading a book on wedding cakes and found a picture of a croquembuche. It looks fantastic and we'd like to have one. What's the deal with them?
Does a regular or French bakery do something like this?
Has anyone here had one at their wedding? Is it as good an idea as it seems or is it a collossal pain in the neck?
