Bostini Cream Cake

I am officially a daring baker! I have completed my first baking challenge...Bostini Cream Cake.
This cake is consists of orange chiffon cake sitting on a bed of creamy custard and drizzled with warm chocolate sauce.

I really love custard especially with crumbles etc.. I have never tried it with chocolate sauce before and must say that they go together really well. Thankyou Mary of Alpineberry for finding a simple yet delicious dessert that can be made for a dinner party gathering or just to enjoy on your own!

I'll be making this cake again and perhaps next time be using some tropical fruit for the cake for an asian twist....looking forward to next months challenge!

beautiful job! I did it twice and the second time used coconut milk in the cake and almond in the custard which was nice.

I used coconut milk for the custard, but I did use orange for the cake. It turned out beautifully.

Your bostini looks great but I have to admit I had a hard time taking my eyes off those cupcakes long enough to even scroll down to see the bostini! Yum!
