“…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.”
This is made using the ‘Never Fail Carob Cake’ recipe doubled (page 200 of The Fed Up Cookbook). The tweaks were gluten free SR flour, rice milk and cocoa powder. DS9 is failsafe, gluten free, dairy free but can tolerate a low level of amines.
It was an absolute hit with all the kids. No one had any idea and the cake tasty and moist and was demolished in no time!!!
The Prank Patrol van is a model ambulance bought at a toy store, hand painted purple with the appropriate signage found on the internet. Similarly, Prank Patrol logo was also from the internet and downloaded. Best thing about this was the car still is in his collection and takes pride and joy.
This cake is a great base for whatever special decorations you want to use that aren’t edible!!!
