The unique Silverwood Croquembouche Set offers the first real alternative to either cobbling together a suitable cone from cardboard and paperclips,
or spending a small fortune on a professional stainless steel cone mould.
The set comes with three components: Flexible cone, top cap and dual-purpose base.
The cone is simply formed and locked in place using the in-built tongue and groove tabs.
Place the cone over the base and top-off with the cap. In this form, the choux buns are simply built-up on the outside of the cone, using caramel or melted chocolate to stick them in place.
For a smaller dessert, drop the top cap into the base and invert the cone as in the picture. Build-up the choux buns on the inside, again sticking them in place with caramel or chocolate.
For this smaller cone it is advisable to use smaller diameter buns to achieve a better definition.
