    Something else. In the Method, you don't explain where to add the vanilla, so I stirred it into the whipping cream, before whipping it.  -  05 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    Gorgeous!!! I added aome grated terry's chocolate orange to the top when chilling. Add as much or as little as you like and it does not spoil the beautiful flavour at all. Thanks for sharing x  -  19 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
