For my cross curricular challenge at school we had to invent something and I invented the sweet salad.
We got given these big blue books to write our ideas in.
I was going to do a chocolate ganache with sweets in but I had better plans yet. While I was watching an evensong I had an idea that instead of just being some chocolate with sweets I would make it like a trifle. It was one of the best ideas I had and this is what I did!
I made a normal cake and cut it into pieces. I put the pieces squashed down to the bottom of the knickerbocker glory glass and then I put quite a lot of gummy bears on top of the cake. I then got some raspberry jelly and put it on top of everything. I then put everything into the fridge for an hour or so.
I got it out of the fridge and made some lovely chocolate ganache and poured it on top of everything.
I then got some fudge and cut it into loads of tiny pieces and pushed them into the middle of the ganache. I then used some smarties to put on the top.
The next day I took them into school to show everyone for the cross curricular challenge. Everyone thought it looked really tasty and that the chocolate was fake. But I knew it wasn’t!
When I was in the car waiting I tried some of it. Like all of the things I do it was fantastic! Although I did think that there was too much chocolate ganache and gummy bears and the glass was to big but that did not matter.
