The soft fin­ish to ev­ery deca­dent meal, it is highly re­garded as one of the nec­es­sary lux­u­ries in life. With an of­ten­times tur­bu­lent 2017 com­ing, at last, to a close, it’s more than ap­pro­pri­ate that we have our cakes, and eat them too. As Nigella Law­son so of­ten says (in so many words), a sweet treat con­veys the mes­sage that the party is wind­ing down. And what’s bet­ter is that you fin­ish the evening on a high, sweet note, which is re­ally more than any­one can ask for where par­ties are con­cerned.

Your choice of dessert doesn’t need to be ex­ces­sive, ei­ther; look out for recipes that are high-im­pact, low­ef­fort. Think choco­late mousses thickly swirled with fresh tart berries or light, fluffy meringues, piped, baked, and then for­got­ten about un­til the hour of your guests’ ar­rival. What­ever the oc­ca­sion, worry not: there’s def­i­nitely a recipe to suit your level of culi­nary prow­ess, as well as the time you’re ready to in­vest into mak­ing dessert. Re­mem­ber: Your guests will taste the joy in your food, so choose some­thing that ul­ti­mately makes you happy as the host and cook!

“My choco­late and peanut but­ter roll cake is some­thing that makes an ap­pear­ance at most Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions,” Sarah says. “In the recipe (on page 134) from Cook­ing For Love, the soft and fudgy choco­late roll is filled with a peanut but­ter cream. If you’re mak­ing it for Christ­mas, whipped cream with rasp­ber­ries, or even a ch­est­nut cream would be per­fect!”
