Tuckshop Ice Cream Cake

Gail and I went out to dinner yesterday to the Heron Marsh at St. Mellons on the eastern side of Cardiff. The Heron Marsh is part of the Flaming Grill Pub Co. chain. We have been there many times before but yesterday was the first time with the new menu.

The main courses are similar to what was on offer before but the surprise was the enhanced range of Puddings on offer.

I studied the menu and decided to go for the Tuckshop Ice Cream Cake . This is described as "Chocolate brownie base with layers of chocolate flavour mousse and clotted cream flavoured ice cream. Topped with mini chocolate rolls, fingers and chocolate orange sponge cake. Served with cream and chocolate flavour sauce." Oh, I thought, thanks sounds nice.

Well, the old adage is "the proof is in the pudding". My pudding arrived and my face broke into a smile, this baby is the one I wanted! Oh boy, what a pudding. This Tuckshop Ice Cream Cake was simply delicious. It has to be considered as a hybrid pudding, a kind of cross between a cheese cake, a gateau and an ice cream special. It is very different to other puddings on the market and is well worth the money. And the taste was faultless, everything I want out of a pudding. I have not had such a good pudding since our last holiday in Egypt last year, the quality of this Tuckshop Ice Cream Cake was just so good. The Flaming Grill Pub Co. have certainly raised the bar with this pudding.
