Marshmallow Rescue Me Fridge Cake

You see this should have been a Bundt cake , I knew I should have follow The Boy and Me's recipe . My Mary Berry senses were tingling with that "ooooooh " sound that Mary Berry makes. I could hear Paul Hollywood saying to me " I can't wait to get my mouth around your moist sponge"

Before this sounds very much like the "Bakes of Grey" the erotic cake novel that never was, I will let you know how you can create your own fridge cake be it from shop brought ones or fairy cakes that have been sat on or Victoria Sponge with as much lift as a wonder bra in your 40's.


Two shop bought Madeira cakes or any disaster you happen to have laying around.

Tin of oranges.

4 handfuls of marshmallows.

1 -2 tablespoons  golden syrup


 The first thing you do is break your cake up it helps if you are quite , quite cross from your Bundt recipe failing or failing that ask your kids to tidy their room ( and when they don't you'll be cross)

Add in a tin of drained orange .

Stir madly.

Add a couple table spoons of fresh orange juice or the liquid from the tinned oranges.

Add 4 handfuls of marshmallows through 3 in you would have eaten the 4th handful due to cake stress.

Add 1 - 2 tablespoons of golden syrup.

Sir again.

Thinking of the musketeers is optional.

Put the magical mixture in a 1LB light greased load tin.

Place in the fridge for a couple of hours.

Whilst you are waiting for this ; you'll probably be tidying your child's bedroom.

  2. I don't fully understand the recipe, but it sounds delicious. Marshmallow with drained oranges, I've never tried that cmmbo.

    1. It's basically mashed up cake with golden syrup and oranges . You could add chocolate . I was trying to make something out of a failure.

  15. Looks very yummy - I'm glad we are not the only ones that have cake disasters.
