Cake-Off Challenge: La Bombe Noel

The second cake to be tasted and tested in Round 2 of the 2010 Christmas Cake-Off Challenge was Janine’s La Bombe Noel. This take on Bombe Alaska was an extravaganza of home made blackboy peach ice cream, coated in meringue on a chocolate sponge cake base. The chef claimed, “it’s mainly fruit, so it’s actually quite healthy.” Then she produced a jug of extra chocolate sauce.

Guest Judge, Lord Forrester of Governor’s Bay, didn’t have much time to spare in between spooning this cake hurriedly into his mouth, but paused briefly to say this about the sparkling structure:

A bombe in the finest tradition of Inspector Clouseau. All round delicious summer fruits. Obviously very healthy.

Other comments from the assembled tasters included, “I’m not sure it needs more chocolate sauce, but I think I’d better try it,” and “This ice cream is amazing!”
