Easy holiday entertaining

The best part about the holidays? Family and friends popping in for a drink, a dinner, an overnight stay. It’s a lovely time of year when we get together with those we love and spend quality time together. What’s the worst part? Not being prepared. Hello, Chateau Gateaux! We stock up on a few of these amazing frozen cakes at the beginning of the hols, so no matter who pops by, we can defrost, decorate and voila … tea time cake or pudding is served! For a festive-looking cake, we fancy this lovely vanilla dream torte layered with Chantilly cream and topped with white chocolate shavings. Add a handful of strawberries (or whatever you have handy) and tuck in. Other cakes we’re stocking up on for the holidays are the passionate lemon cheesecake (a heavenly combo of passion fruit and lemon on a golden gingerbread crumble base – perfect for when it’s too hot for anything heavy) and the peppermint caramel tart (because – peppermint tart!). Details: chateaugateaux.co.za. We’ve got a voucher for one reader to win a cake of their choice. Simply like our post on the Get It Joburg North Facebook page, tag a friend and you’ll be in the draw. Entries close December 10.
