While we will make every effort to meet your requests, please be aware that each pièce montée is different and therefore variations will occur.
Storage of your Croquembouche:
A croquembouche needs to be kept in a cool, air conditioned space. It can not be put in a fridge or cold-room as the toffee which holds it together will take in the humidity and may melt. It must be consumed on the same day.
Due to the hot and humid weather, please follow these instructions, as once the croquembouche has left Chouquette we can not guarantee its condition.
Payment and Collection:
Payment must be made in Full for any order. We can take payment over the phone or in the store. A minimum 3 days notice is required prior to pick up.
Please ensure that there are two people collecting the Croquembouche – a driver and a person to hold the croquembouche on their lap.
When you collect your croquembouche we will give instructions on how to get it safely to your destination.
The Croquembouche will be packed on a cardboard tray, lined with chux cloth to reduce the risk of slipping, however care must be taken during transport.
The following variation are available at additonal charge:
- Raised Nougatine Base.
