learn something new today

A croquembouche or croquenbouche is a French dessert, a kind of pièce montée often served at weddings, baptisms, and first communions. It is a high cone of profiteroles (choux filled with pastry cream) bound with caramel, and usually decorated with threads of caramel, sugared almonds, chocolate, flowers, or ribbons.

The name comes from the French words 'Croque en bouche' meaning 'crunch in the mouth'.

I. I am totally awesome, but that's not the point of my blog.
II. You want to know what a blog war is? You're gonna find out real soon. Especially since you attacked my comment section.
III. How's your summer going?
IV. Like Street Fighter IV (Roman Numerals FTW).

Does that mean the game croquet stands for crunch?

MJ: That is a good question.

Tyrell: U R lame. I wrote it that way to annoy you because you're a writing tutor.
