Croquembuche Available at Douce France in Palo Alto

I just came across an old thread where some readers were wondering if Palo Alto baking Co. was still making Croquembuche. I am not sure but I do know that Douce France makes them over in Town and Country Village. I just ordered one (about 35 cream puffs) and it was beautiful and very tasty. I do not remember the cost but reasonable.
Just an FYI.

They are located in Town and Country Village and the phone number is 650-322-3601.

      Yes. Their fruit tarts and Napoleons are very good as are the plain croissants (yummy!). The cafe is a great place to hang out too...good espresso, warm and inviting atmosphere and free wireless if you need it. Enjoy.

    2. Thank you! I love croquembouche. How many people will this one serve?

        Depending on how many cream puffs each person can order a cake with one- two puffs per person.

      2. I love Douce France. They put a little dessert on every sandwich plate. What a nice touch!
