Failsafe Recipes: Sweet things, biscuits, desserts

Birthday bombe

Bombes are desserts made of icecream or cream packed with biscuits, cake or meringue in a mound shape and decorated, perfect for special occasions.

3 pavlova magic eggs
600 ml cream
2 tbsp icing sugar
white marshmallows
decorations – ornaments, flowers etc

Mix the pavlova magic as per the instructions and make three pavlova bases (I did this as one each night before the party, the last one cooked being the base of the cake). On the day of the party break two of the bases into pieces and place on top of the chosen base, shaping into a mound. Whip the cream with the icing sugar until thick (we added cocoa - if amines are tolerated). Spread all over the mound of meringue and decorate with the meringues and ornaments (for kids) or flowers and a bow around the base for adults. – thanks to Jill
