Champagne towers are the epitome of a celebration.
I’ve put together a few of them now, and have learned some valuable lessons along the way. This is one where I learned a few…🙃
🥂Coupe glasses are the best (these ones shown are flutes and are best for drinking the champagne, but the coupe glasses make it easier for keeping the glasses together for the formation and pour).
🥂Have a sturdy table to avoid wobbles. The glasses are very delicate and can fall over and break before the champagne is poured (3 of these ones did).
🥂Make sure the glasses are touching each other and fit tightly together. Start building your tower from the bottom upwards with 6, 8, 10, 12 or more glasses. Layer the glasses to form a diamond shape as you go. The next layer will have less glasses until you reach the top layer of 1 champagne glass.
🥂You will need one bottle of champagne for every 5 glasses.
Start pouring slowly from the top and it will flow downwards into the glasses below.
You might need to top them up afterwards (especially with the type of flutes shown here).
