Been invited over for New Year's Day dinner at inlaws, having steak pie and volunteered to bring dessert for what will be 5 of us. Any ideas for what I should make? Impressive but easy is best.

Something light after steak pie, maybe a lemon posset with fresh raspberries?

About a 15 minute drive to their place, do you think the posset would hold for the ride or melt?

Should be fine, just make sure they've been well chilled at home in advance. Put them on a tray in your fridge then take the whole tray in the car and advise the hosts to leave space for it in their fridge.

Pavlova - I would top it with mango and pomegranate seeds

Mary Berry's chocolate roulade. Looks impressive but very easy to make and is quite light.

I've been recommended Mary Berry's chocolate roulade before so I think that could be a safe bet as I believe DP gets his chocolate obsession from his DD. I like the sound of lemon cheesecake but I'm afraid I've used up the last of my gran's lemon curd a few weeks ago and wouldn't be sure which supermarket brand is good - I'll have a look in the big co-op near my flat to see if they have one. Thanks for all your help guys!
