According to BBC.com, Jemma Melvin was the Platinum Jubilee dessert winner. She created a lemon and Swiss roll amaretti trifle. She stated that she wants it to be “the people’s dessert.”

About 5,000 people entered the nationwide competition to create a new pudding to commemorate the Queen’s 70-year reign. Then, five finalists competed before a panel of expert judges in a show on BBC One.

Throughout the long weekend pubs and restaurants celebrate throughout the United Kingdom. So, it’s only fitting the EPCOT’s United Kingdom restaurants celebrate as well. This weekend only, travel to The Rose and Crown and Yorkshire County Fish Shop to try a version of the winning dessert.

I (Susan) love that you can try it a quick service location! However, you need to be quick! It’s only here June 4-5! If you try it, please let us know what you think.
