Cake Ideas?

Ask a Question

So a bunch of friends are having a cake-baking competition over Zoom this week. The challenge is that we're not allowed to bake a cake from eggs, milk, butter, sugar etc. We have to improvise cake from anything else that we have on hand. I was thinking of gluing some pancakes together with buttercream and jam. Any other ideas?

Sounds great! Anything with Nutella on top is an instant win in my book! Thanks for sharing 🙂

What about using crispies? melt marshmallows & toffees into rice crispies, put mix into a lined cake tim and let it harden. You can even sculpt it before it hardens if you're feeling very creative. It can be covered in icing too and decorated.

You're so right. Crispy cake could be shaped into a sculpture. What a good idea. Thanks for sharing!

You might be right. That's 2 votes for vegan cake recipes on this thread. How long does vegan cake keep in a tin once cooked? 🍰

Probably not helpful but I've noticed cake mixes often use oil instead of butter

If we use oil, how does this affect cooking time?
