So she passed it into me and we decided to have fun making it. I do not tend to buy this sort of item but it is nice to try things out. Also thought it would be great for Bob now his reading is coming along well and Fifi was not here that he could read and follow the instructions for himself.
So we took out packet of carrot cake mix. and set about making it. The only drawback the instructions had for us were they were in a paragraph not bullet pointed or numbered, so Bob needed to start from the beginning every time, he could not scan and find the point he had finished at, so I pointed out his starting point for him so he did not end up getting frustrated. His learning skills have come on great and I'm sure this time next year he will manage.
First off we read the front of the packet that told us we needed to add margarine, eggs and carrots.
Bob knows he cannot eat eggs, and it does tell you you can use egg replacer.
The instructions told us to melt the margarine, but as a lover of flora cuisine we just used that instead. The instructions also say you can add walnuts and/or sultanas if you want. So we added sultanas as we cant add nuts.

We added 2 oz of water to get a good consistency, was a bit dry without but that could have been due to the lack of water in the egg replacer compared to eggs.

I will need to look out for some of the other types and try them out as well.
The price compares very favourable with buying shop bought cake of this type.
