This would make an amazing and very seasonal finish at a Christmas lunch! Use cherries for that hint of red for the Festive feel.

  • The cheesecake was divine.

    The cheesecake was divine. However, my roasted fruit was a big fat fail. They didn't caramelise, they only burned. I don't know if I didn't put enough caster sugar on there, but I was so unsure of the amount needed.Next time, I will probably top it with fresh mango slices or something similar
