need to make a dessert for 6 adults for Mother's day, needs to be relatively easy to make and easily transportable by car. There is no facility to heat anything up so must be ok cold.

Any ideas?

I don't have a particular recipe but what about a cheese cake?

The Delia Smith Lemon Roulade recipe is very good and won me praise at my parents' recent 50th anniversary party.

This is AMAZING. Make in a springform tin and keep it in there for transporting, mine survived three and a bit hours down to Devon and was heaven on a plate...

Eton Mess, transport in a lidded plastic box, serve with a drizzle of liqueur and some pretty biscuits, home made if possible, or a pavlova assembled when you get to the venue, with Eton Mess as Plan B if it does not transport well.

What about Nigel Slater's DELICIOUS white chocolate and cardamom mousse?


Totally delicious, you can shave the dark choc on top at the last minute......

Chocolate banoffee pie [] I get asked to take it everywhere. Super easy but I use milk chocolate.

But for a bit more work (way easier than you'd imagine by looking at it)

Have transported both in a cake box.

I cannot bake to save my life but the only two things that I can bake well (no pun intended) are a cheesecake (recipe adapted from "I Can Cook") and a bakewell cake. These always turn out great and are as yummy hot as they are cold.

Transport the meringue base, the whipped cream, and the chopped fruit seperately, and asemble in situ.

I would recommend nigella's red raspberries in Chardonnay jelly. It can be made as a large one or individuals, and transports really well.

Was going to suggest pavlova,too!

Summer pudding

Chocolate tipsy cake - a delicious creamy brandy-ish concoction with layers of ladyfingers.

MissWooWoo Mon 04-Mar-13 19:34:07

Ooo! lots of lovely suggestions here, cheesecake is a good idea and I absolutely love the look of that chocolate and caramel layer cake ... might do both, I reckon my mum's worth it!

Yum this is like pudding porn :D

A really good chocolate mousse. Top with crushed amaretti biscuits when you get there.

MissWooWoo Mon 04-Mar-13 19:47:24

oh my effing god that cake is 1000 calories a slice, a slice ladies! good job I noticed that it's got ground almonds in it (has to be nut free, sorry should have mentioned that)

I know mamaonion and I'm avoiding puddings at the moment so really looking forward to treating myself everyone on Mother's Day

Oh my! That Bakewell cake is crying out to be made right now. I seem to remember I have some ground almonds that are begging to be used. smile
