How we test
A Christmas dessert centrepiece should taste appropriately sweet but can be anything from a rich, chocolate-based pudding to a light, fruity dessert. The aroma should be enticing with a good strength, and a blend of textures too to create a lovely mouthfeel. We also focus on appearance more than usual as, although taste is central, an impressive festive display adds to the magic of the grand finale.
