Was thinking of a Christmas Mille Feuille ...chocolate and peppermint
Then something went astray

What do we think of using, instead of pastry cream, chocolate BUTTERcream (initially, also with vanilla / peppermint buttercream, but probably not) , coarsly crushed candy cane powder, and then coat the top with white royal icing striped with red

Any thoughts?
With thanks in advance

I like what you're suggesting! However I wouldn't use buttercream unless you're planning a thin layer, that would be a heck of a lot of butter otherwise. How about making a chocolate creme pat? I think the rest sounds fantastic though. Maybe add some mint to the icing too, yummmm :D

An old mentor of mine used to say: “when all else doesn’t seem right: CHECK THE OBVIOUS “

It doesn't work,
buttercream is too dry to lend anything to puff dough.
royal icing will dry and crack off.
Pastry cream or whipped cream or both mixed.
You can buy dry granulated fondant online, Real fondant, not the rolled stuff.
