They are pretty expensive to buy so would rather hire. Most of the hire shops I have rang around Mansfield/Nottingham don't do them :(
If anybody can help that would be great, the wedding is not till the beginning of March so i'm not quite panicking yet!

apparently you can use a traffic cone, well washed of course!! i won't look when you nick one:whistling:
#2
Maybe E-bay? if you buy second hand, then use it, then sell it on afterwards.

You must post pictures afterwards, they look amazing!!

Try this http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1801/croquembouche and this gives you the formula for the cone size http://www.kolumbus.fi/antti.lusila/models/laskekartio.html
Try using a good quality card board and oil it well or cover in foil :thumbsup:

we did a medium size one (about 13" tall) for my mums 60th in Jan, used cardboard and greaseproof paper, trial and error plus a few slapped wrists from my brother as I kept scoffing the profits lol :oops:

Think the cardboard plan might work or a trip over to France to see if we can pick one up cheaper than here :)
I still like the idea of a traffic cone...I need one small one for the kiddies croquembouche and one large for the traditional.

my mum can't eat choc so my brother filled the profits with lemon cream and dipped with caramel sauce.....yummy

The traditional one I had for my wedding was filled with creme patissiere and cognac then put together with caramel and nougatine...then we had a small one for the kiddies that was covered with chocolate sauce and loads of tiny marshmallows :w00t: We did have a traditional fruit wedding cake as well....but it didn't get touched :roll: I wonder why :whistling:

that sounds gorgeous :-D........I am not a fan of fruit cake so another idea for me if I ever get married, you'll have to show us a pic when done so that we can salivate :thumbsup:
