croquembouche in Wisteria Lane

If you watch last night's Desperate Housewives (Season 5 episode 1, You're Gonna Love Tomorrow), you shall know that Katherine sabotaged Bree in front of TV chew by asking Bree to finish the decoration of croquembouche.

I happened to have some photos of croquenbouche made by Laurent's student in his Pastry Class.

(As usual, more photos follow...)

This is a croquenbouche made by one of Laurent's students:

Okay, Bree Hodge (previously Van de Kamp) is very good at making gourmet meals and treats. In season 4, Katherine Mayfair moved into the Fairview suburb, she appears to be better than Bree.

Also, you don't really need a special whisk like the one Bree used for making spun sugar netting:

Croquembouche is also known as Pièce Montée in many places.

Croquembouche... I can't pronounce it or spell it!

The two housewives did mention a few times in the show, and you certainly don't expect the non-English speaking Antony could manage to know how to spell it or even catch the word.
