FAILSAFE (or close) Decorated Cakes — Home-made decorated cakes, with low salicylate, amine and glutamate, and no bad additives.

Kwazii by Ashley

KwazziIt’s my first ‘almost’ failsafe cake and I’m sure there will be lots to come. I’m very keen to master marshmallow fondant. 🙂

My son asked for a Kwazii cake from the Octonauts. The cake was made using the White Wings Angelic Vanilla Cake mix. The icing was vienna cream icing from the Women’s Weekly cookbooks and I used Hopper’s Natural Colours food colouring. The rest of the detail was made with fondant and wasn’t failsafe so I just avoided these parts for my son. I used natural food colouring for everything except the black parts.

Glad to help out others with cake ideas. 🙂

  1. This is such an awesome cake! I can see my kids wanting one. Octonauts are IT here at the moment. I get in trouble if I leave them playing outside and they miss it! They would probably scream with excitement if I made something like this!
    On the details, the marshmallow fondant really is worth trying and isn’t as hard as it seems! Ive done it three times now. Only hint: Dont attempt to substitute more than half the icing sugar with soft icing mixture (with cornflour)!!! LOL. Best Not ask! Lets just say it is a little dry and crumbly and “start-from-scratch-y” :-S
    For colours, you may be able to use saffron for yellow/orange if you were worried, but a few of us have had a lot of success using crushed charcoal tablets to get black. It’s more of a matte black, but it works.
