Croquembouche

Was having a discussion with a coworker today and it occurred to me that I haven't had croquembouche since La Baguette et l'Echalote shut down on Granville Island, and probably for quite a while before that.

Does anyone have any recommendations on the best bakery to obtain a small portion of this delicious treat? Those mini-pyramids of 4 balls they had at La Baguette were just perfect.

Please note that just a cream puff won't do, it has to have the crackly caramel on top...

    I wonder if Chez Christophe in Burnaby makes 'em.

      Thanks for the intel! Do you know if either makes individual-sized portions, or just the mega-stacks?

        I stopped by Bistro 101 and they DO make individual portions! Huzzah!
