have I imagined a pudding you can make with rhubarb, ginger snaps and cream?

I have all said ingredients and I'm thinking crush ginger biscuits and layer them with whipped cream and rhubarb...

I'm sure I've seen this recipe somewhere (well, not really a recipe as no cooking required, more an assemblage) but I can't find it. Just wondering if there's more to it than that? Is there a subtle twist that will turn it from a strange collection of leftovers to a proper pudding that people will like and admire me for

put anything in a stemmed glass with lots of cream and people will love you for it

(do remember to stew the rhubarb and taste carefully for sweetness)

Probably a common version of Eton Mess

King Edward's Comprehensive Mess.

Peach schnapps whipped in with the cream would be nice, I reckon.

Surely not imagined it, sounds divine. How about make a rhurbarb fool with crushed biscuits on the top, or the bottom, or forget the biscuits and just eat the fool?

Damn you Badger.

familiar but can't remember the name (LOL at Colditz- coz like they use stemmed glasses in laods of comps these days )

I thought you did biccys, cream rhubarc so the biccys absorbed the cream? and tehn I would add a touch of stem ginger over cream to the final layer

and some syruppy cooked down demarara and ginger wine perhaps would pull it together?

I've been making a ginger orange log thing for years - dip gingernuts in orange juice then wedge them together into a log with cream. Cover whole thing with cream then crumble flake over the top.
I bet it would work just as well with rhubarb if you stewed it first.
It's damn nice with the orange juice tho.
