    Well, I'll get the ball rolling. Two efforts.

    hidden gem 600g of sweet potato. Makes them very moist.

    These are a firm favourite in our house-there are also pureed dates in there. They are delicious.

    Interesting. I have heard of adding beetroot but not sweet potato.

    I will post mine in a few....

    This is half of it, as son and husband consumed the other half before I took the photo,

    hidden gem-a tin of tomato soup.

    I found the recipe on the internet and was so intrigued that I thought I'd try it. I love tomato soup, but I didn't like it in the cake. There was an option of adding raisins or chocolate chips-I opted for the raisins.

    Beetroot? In cake?

    I couldn't think of anything finer!

    Here is my entry - plain vanilla crème brulee. Or is it:

    Once you get inside yummy gems of fresh raspberry.

    Tasting notes: flavours of vanilla and raspberry were good. I think the oven temperature needs adjusting though. The crème brulee was a bit scrambled eggy and less smooth than usual.

    Tomato soup in a cake. Sounds brave - it's such a strong flavour. It also sounds like a good reason not to go vegan!

    I won't be making it again! I am surprised that my husband liked it, as he doesn't like tomato soup.

    I love the school holidays when people have a little time to experiment and share. Thanks for the inspiration Sparkle!

    That is so clever :D

    I thought that you mentioned a disaster??

    How did you do it BTW?

    The recipe suggested a chocolate icing that was made with cream and chocolate and sounded like a lot of trouble. After much deliberation, I decided a simple orange drizzle icing would do. I made a batch of icing and drizzled it on to the cake - the icing was having none of it and drizzled off again to form a sticky puddle all around the cake.

    Undeterred, I resolved to have another go. I reached up to get the icing sugar out of the cupboard and a jar of honey fell out of the cupboard and landed on the cake! (I stuck it back together with icing so you can't see the damage :D)

    Wow! That's great, how did you get the heart shape? Closest I have ever seen was my mums amazing marble cake, but even that was a muddle in comparison *albeit very 70's. ;):D

    Made a chocolate cake first and cut into a heart shaped prism. Then made a vanilla cake, put about half the mixture in the tin, put the heart shape on top and pushed it in a bit, then added the rest of the vanilla mix.
    There were quite a lot of off-cuts from the chocolate cake - thank goodness for hungry sons to tidy them up!

    Fab, thanks for the insight... not sure I'd have the patience, or be able to resist the chocolate cake... but I am very impressed indeed. :D
