  3. Fudge: Blend yam with part of coconut milk with a blender and place all ingredients in a saucepan and cook until slightly thickened, off heat. Divide into four portions.

  4. To assemble: Place a layer of cake into a 9'' loose base cake tin. I used a cake ring and place on the cake board. Spread a thin layer of fudge on the cake. Repeat process to the end. Leave to set in the refrigerator.

  5. Remove cake from tin by slowly lifting the cake ring. Spread sides and top with remaining yam fudge or decorate with non-dairy whipping cream.
