If you're looking for an alternative wedding cake but don't think of yourself as a cupcake queen, then this beautiful choux pyramid is the answer. Available from Laduree, the Parisian patisserie renowned for its macaroons, it'll certainly add a "wow" factor to your reception. The choux puffs can be filled with your choice of cream (plain, chocolate or coffee flavoured), and are covered with icing. We love the idea of dividing it up and serving as a dessert. The perfect portion size is four choux puffs per guest which works out at £9.50 a head.
