cake with meringuecake with candles

“…It is a mix of things pulled out of failsafe books. Firstly the cake is from the failsafe cookbook (pg. 241) Melt and Mix Coffee Cake. The recipe uses a bar cake so I made 2 round ones doubling the recipe .Then I put pear jam in between the two. I also used the icing that goes with this recipe.  The day before I made the honeycomb and meringue from the Friendly Food book from RPAH Allergy Unit (pgs 159 & 221) because I was short of time on the day. Then you could probably colour the meringue or icing with things like saffron I suppose and use different coloured ribbon and candles.”
