I’ve been wanting to make a Bombe for ages. I knew it wouldn’t be super easy, otherwise everyone would be making them, wouldn’t they? I was set the Halloween Challenge by Unilever when they sent me some products to come up with a Halloween creation. I decided to combine my Bombe with a Pumpkin and the Chocolate Orange Pumpkin Bombe was born.
For a first attempt, its not too bad. The taste of the orange creme is fantastic – I am so pleased with it. However, it just wouldn’t set – until I froze it for 3 days! I’d definitely recommend more icing sugar than I used. I mushed up the tangerines into the cream but I think if you wanted the cream to set firmer, I’d place them on top of each layer of cake instead.
Tip: Get all of the icing completely ready before you get it out of the freezer – Make it really easy to cover whilst it is still frozen. I used a chocolate Matchmaker for the stalk.
