A traditional French cake made from a tower of caramelized Grand Marnier cream puffs. Often made for weddings but is perfect for any special occasion. Sizes range from 12in to 3ft and can hide a bottle of your favorite bubbly or dessert wine if you choose!
Priced $2.70 per puff (min 80 puffs, max 350 puffs); Pix recommends 2-3 puffs per person.
You have to see it to appreciate the name! Fresh fruit piled high and decoratively atop a mound of pastry cream and buttery tart shell. Wear it like the performer or eat it like the rest of us – you decide!
