Christmas cakes with a twist

Blimey.

You know how they say a builder’s house is never finished.. it seems a writer’s blog is never written!
Popping that on my resolutions list for sure. But for now.. let there be Christmas cake.

November’s Chichester Clandestine Cake meeting was one of the tastiest yet.. which is saying something.
FEAST your eyes on this

So good, and impossible to name. The closest we got has a hazelnut meringue layered, poached pear in mulled wine, toffee and caramel cake topped with meringue mushrooms. Made by Laure , who last appeared at cake club on the previous November meeting.. it had me thinking she might be Santa. And it was just the start of the festive baked treats..

My offering was a Chocolate and Christmas Pudding Baked Cheesecake that looked a bit like this..
