For the squares, I rolled out the coloured fondant on baking parchment with a bunch of cornflour to stop it sticking and then just sliced it into rows and squares with a pizza cutter.

Instructions for how to make Marshmallow Fondant both in a Thermomix or on the stove-top can be found at Domestic Diva’s blog.

Recipe for Magic Bean chocolate cake is here; just substitute kidney beans with cannelini or butter beans and the carob with rice flour and add equiv 1 vanilla bean.

I suspect the cake was  greener than this picture suggests.
