“Using Best Ever Carob Cake, a basic buttercream with carob powder and lollies from allergy train to decorate.” This is a classic Australian Woman’s Weekly Cookbook cake.
“(Licorice not fs) cake is gluten-free, dairy free, fs, carob cake and icing.”
“A failsafe ice-cream cake, except for the chocolate shells (amines). We used Peter’s Original Vanilla icecream (free of annatto) and Arnott’s Scotch Finger biscuits (processed) as ‘sand’.
This is from an Australian Women’s Weekly cake book.”
It’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. 🙂
From Australian Women’s Weekly Birthday cake book.
White buttercream icing and chocolate buttercream tinted using cocoa. White chocolate melts for ears and paws. Natural coloured smarties and liquorice (can all be easily removed). Cadbury dairy milk button discs beneath eye smarts.
Preferred cake cooked in a pudding tin. Legs removed from Barbie and decorated with ribbon, tulle, etc.
Doll was supported in the cake by some toothpicks. Dress is piped whipped cream. Silver cachous for dress detail.
Princess castle, inspired by Women’s Weekly cookbook. Icecream cone turrets, Queen’s writing icing for windows and door, princess figurines found in kinder suprise-style princess eggs, coloured flowers aren’t failsafe.
This pirate ship is from the Women’s Weekly cookbook. We decided to go with curly wurlies as these have amines, but are otherwise good. Mint lifesavers have some salicylates. The rest is carob icing, Queen’s writing icings (natural colours), silver cachous and paper. Big hit.
Fairy toadstool – Queen’s pink and yellow colours. Home-made heart lollies (icing sugar, citric lemon juice, colour – then gently bake), though the green ones aren’t failsafe. Neither are the musk-sticks and coloured flowers. Then just add some fairy statues.
This one is old Australian Women’s Weekly cookbook – cochineal icing, Milky Bar buttons, natural colour sprinkles. Smarties have amines, pink marshmallows are not failsafe. Gave those to the visitors…
