This intriguing treat has popped up after the team over at Pleesecakes took festive favourite pigs in blankets and put them on a cheesecake, as you do, and it’s been coined as their “most controversial cake to date.”

The cake is named The Notorious P.I.B, and, like Marmite, it’s bound to completely split opinion with some loving it and others hating it.

So what’s it made of? Well the rather large cake, which costs £38, boasts a range of ingredients which you’ve probably never put together in the past.

You can expect cheddar cheese, oatmeal and thyme base, with a savoury cheesecake filling containing fresh thyme, sage and yes, the main ingredient, pigs in blankets.

The experimental cake is then topped off with sweet caramelised onion chutney, crispy pigs in blankets galore, and some fresh sprigs of thyme and rosemary.

And it’s a great dessert to bag as it’s said to serve between ten to twelve people, with Pleesecakes adding that it’s “a great alternative to the standard post-dinner cheeseboard.”
