I need a birthday 'cake' recipe that can be eaten by someone on a puree diet ... this is not a bonkers weaning request!

My wonderful, amazing granny is celebrating her 94th birthday next week.

She has advanced aesophogal cancer, & is on a pureed diet (although hardly eating at the moment sad) which is hard for her, as a long term foodie.

I want to make her something that feels like a birthday cake, but has a soft texture ... I was wondering about a creme brulee/chocolate mousse type thing. Any other ideas??

You can make a lovely big creme caramel that you can put candles in.

Trifle? - go to town on the decorations and she can leave those if not suitable.

Obviously with a trifle she can eat whichever of the layers she fancies. Would she be allowed a tiny bit of sherry in it?

Would something souffle like be light enough to dissolve in her mouth?

Ice cream cake is a fab idea smile

And yes, she is certainly allowed sherry ... she checked with the consultant that she was allowed booze before they sent her home smile

big pink shaped blancmange with piped cream? <i know, i know, but it'd look cool in the photos>
dh's grandad has just been changed from puree to tube, otherwise we were in your position this month too.
hope you manage a few trial runs to find something that is perfect.

well, I wouldn't have thought of blancmange (in fact, it's taken me three tries to spell it smile)
Sorry to hear about your dh's granddad, Romy7.

Yes, she was quite pleased about the sherry too (well, more pleased about bordeux, tbh)

(although I suspect she would think Bailey's a bit of a girls drink smile)
