A "pièce montée" is a French decorative layered wedding cake in an architectural form made of cream puffs, nougat, marzipan and spun sugar.
Literally, it means "assembled piece". The adjective "montée" refers to an upward direction.
This piece is in two sections and contains elements of simple improvisation.
