Being lactose intolerant is a complete butthole. Especially as yummy, shop bought cakes are generally packed full of lactosey things like butter, milk and whey powder. So the family and I were missing Mr Kipling's French Fancies, beautiful little pillows of sponge topped with some unidentifiable "creme" (think the filling from twinkies and you'll be pretty close) and covered with fondant icing.

I gave in. I attempted making them. I may never attempt this again!!!!

I used Mary Berry's recipe, but with tweaks. 1. I used lactose free substitutes. 2. I didn't use marzipan. 3. I used powdered fondant icing rather than the block kind she recommends, 4. instead of butter cream for the yummy blob, I made a Marguerite Patten mock cream an 5, when making the icing I used lemon juice and a little teensy bit of lemon oil plus a dash of tumeric for colour instead of using water.





they were horrific to try and ice, they look hideous, but my goody goodness they're tasty! about twice the size of the packet variety too!!!!!
