Cake-Off Challenge: Possum Pie

The third cake to be tasted and tested in Round 3 of the 2010 Christmas Cake-Off Challenge was Pen’s Possum Pie. The inspiration arose from a conversation about what Large Sculpture ought to adorn the small town in which Cake Club abides, to rival Rakaia’s Big Fish or Cromwell’s Giant Fruit. It came down to a choice between a Monster Possum or a Hhge Hillyers Pie. Pen proceeded to make a Monster Possum Pie. No animals were harmed in the making of this cake.

Guest Judge, Lord Forrester of Governor’s Bay, had this to say about the creation:

Lovely sponge. Good butter icing – even not being a fan of icing, I could eat that. Very tasty.

Other comments from the assembled tasters mostly revolved around a concern that the pie might collapse under its own gravitational field, but also included grunts of delight.
