Chilly Hazelnut Cake

While prepping for the festivities, there is a huge pile of treats.

One is a thin cake with a chocolate ganache on top. I looked at some Norwegian recipes and this is a hazelnut cake that looks really similar. It is kinda like a cookie cake, but still awesome.

Fix it Felix Anniversary Cake

At the beginning part of the movie, the characters from Fix it Felix through an anniversary party. One of them bakes a cake that’s a replica of the building they live in. She even goes through and names all the cake flavors, Red Velvet, Lemon, Rum and Vanilla. She doesn’t get to the vanilla, but it is mentioned in a Wreck it Ralph children’s book.

So we got to make all of these cakes!  The rum was the best, followed by the lemon.

Inside of Vanellope’s cave, it is made from tons of Peanut Brittle.

I had to be really careful making this because my wife is severely allergic to peanuts. I only got to try a little before giving the rest away.

Laffy Taffy

Felix uses the Laffy Taffy to rescue himself and Calhoun from the Nesquik sand. 

Something went wrong when I was making the Taffy, it became very liquidy and wouldn’t harden. I don’t know what went wrong. Maybe you’ll have better luck
