Bonfire parties need a festive cake. A pudding basin or a metal ice-cream bombe mould gives the right bonfire shape for covering with frosting and chocolate sticks. Since devising this cake for my own children, I’ve added a hidden surprise for their children – the centre of the cake is filled with coloured sweets to represent fireworks. Children are usually keen to make a marzipan ‘Guy’ to decorate the top of the cake.
