I have a reputation to keep.My work place does a dessert contest annually . I have such pressure to come up with something.I am little known for my baking around there and every year I'm expected to participate.
So...... here is the my dilemma. It's a taste test,people get a taste.About two bites of your great dessert in a paper cup.Ahhhhh..... what would you make if you people were going to take just a "taste"?
Any magical wonderful ideas??????? :0

          Swedish Rum Cream: Soak 1 envelope plain gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water. Beat 5 egg yolks with 3/4 cup sugar. Slowly add 2 cups hot milk. Cook custard in double boiler until thick. When thick and smooth, add soaked gelatin and let dissolve in hot custard. Let cool completely. Fold in 1 cup heavy cream, whipped. (Do not use the egg whites---this is not an accidental omission.) Then here is how much rum you add---not a spoonful, but 1/2 cup. A dark Jamaican rum like Myers gives the best flavor. Pour into mold or small molds and chill. Serve with lingonberries or raspberries. I recommend this for your Taste Test competition as one mouthful of it makes a clear announcement of itself: rich, creamy, and very rummy.

            If it were me, I would do one of two things.

            A chocolate torte ... because you get a deep rich chocolate flavor with a nice crusty outer layer and a creamy pudding center. Perfect for a two-bite dessert.

            Or, a cheesecake with a graham cracker and potato chip crust. Again, creamy, savory, sweet and crunchy.

              I posted this twice. couldn't find the first post then found it. I find these Boards confusing,so if you see my question twice it's because I'm a knucklehead.
