Cake-Off Challenge: Cheesemas Pudding

The fourth and final of the Christmas Cake-Off 2010 Challenge Cakes to be tasted on this fine December morning was the Cheesemas Pudding by Helen. Her inspiration came from the layered ice cream cake, Vienetta. “But I discovered that you can’t bake chocolate seams. They melt. Then I made a no-bake cheesecake, and froze it, which looked great but it was too hard to eat. So this one looks a bit like it’s melting. It has a meringue base and the plate is coated with white chocolate.” In addition, the pudding prompted Grand Larceny, as Helen had to steal holly leaves from a neighbouring garden to create the chocolate embellishments. Very festive.

Guest Judge, Lord Forrester of Governor’s Bay, being quite full of cake by now, had this to say about the pudding:

Smooth and chocolately. Tastes of happiness. Presentation superlative.

Other comments from the assembled tasters included “A labour of love,” and very truthfully, “No need for lunch.”
