    Can dessert cream be poured over hot cake soon as it comes out the oven????I have heard of this style as well but never tried it.

      Hi Neerie. Thank you for your comment. Dessert cream can be poured over the cake.

      It depends on an individual… Dessert cream also enhances the cake, so if you pour over a hot cake, it will be absorbed into the cake making it more rich…
      When you pour out on a cold cake, a little dessert cream is absorbed and it creates an appealing presentation to the eye.
