It’s true: craziness! As this lovely little baked good's name implies, it is sheer madness.
It may not look like much, standing there, properly lined up on the shelf with its peers.
But take it home and tear into it. Madness, I promise you!
The doughy, whipped brioche is densely construed and piped with thick vanilla pastry cream with just a titch of rum raisin.
All topped with praliné crumble and a touch of confectioner’s sugar.
I would kill to have a slice of Conticini’s 66-euro holiday buche.
But for two euro and some change, La Folie one of the best sweets—and craziest deals—I’ve had in a long time.
