Bob wanted to make cakes for E

Bob really does get quite excited by the idea of having E over at this end that he can make "Bob safe" cakes for E  and her mummy S and that she eats them, somebody outside the family who eats this very acquired taste that "Bob safe" actually is.

So while Fifi was adding a few pages to her scrapbook, a project that will take a few weeks and I will post about once finished, we made some "E friendly" cakes. Now E is 17, just started college and has pals to hang around with so I dont think she is quite as excited by this as Bob is but he loves taking cakes to her and she readily accepts them with a smile, a kind word and a conversation.

We made orange cakes with orange flavoured icing.

we used 110g flora cuisine as it makes for moister cakes than tub margarine
added 70g of frusianna
 mixed with 2 teaspoons of orange essence
and 1 teaspoon of glycerin
and 1 heaped tablespoon of flaxseed soaked for about 20 mins in 6 tablespoons water
once mixed we added 120 g buckwheat flour
40 potato flour
and 40 g tapioca flour

and added 1 tablespoon of water as mix was a bit dr.popped them into a dozen cake cases

cooked at 180o for 15 mins

once cool we made icing with a small amount of icing sugar, no I didn't weight it, and mixed with 1 teaspoon of the orange essence and enough cold water to get desired consistency

These cakes were very nice and surprisingly light considering what's missing.

This is a review post with items supplied by Healthy Supplies, but the findings are my own.
