I say cannot be chocolate only that a family member gets migraines from any form of chocolate.
I wanted to try something different to a basic vanilla cake....
Would love some ideas please original.gif

I've done an orange and poppy seed cake mix and it was the nicest fondant cake I've ever made. It was a number 1 cake covered with blue fondant.

I have done the Exclusively Food White chocolate cake too, and it is delicious!  I make it into a rainbow swirl - divide into 6 portions and colour each one, then all into the baking tin.

The white chocolate cake sounds delicious but yes, she cant even have white chocolate. I think white chocolate is in fact worse for migraines that dark choc is....
