Fear not! If you can get to an Asda, they do their own brand of Sosmix which is awesome for making sausage rolls.


YAY! THANK YOU!


I live to serve the vegan sausage roll cause.

Yay! I have pounland candy canes!


I just bought some too, tell me about these candycane cupcakes, please!


I either make chocolate or vanilla cupcakes & put crushed candy canes in the batter & then frost them with a white mint icing also full of crushed candy canes, yum!



Wow! I made the Vegan Cookie Connoisseur candy cane cookies (http://vegancookies.wordpress.com/2009/12/28/christmas-cookies-complete-with-a-video-demo-of-how-to-smash-candy-canes/) with 99p shop candy canes as a thank you present and they went down great. Candy cane cupcakes is definitely my next step after your suggestion.

holy crepe, those candy cane cookies look amazing! How fortuitous seeing as I bought candy canes for my tutor group and then only six of them were in cause of the snow. I am in candy cane surplus!

This totally worked with Sainsbury's candy canes - it does not work with £1 land candy canes! If you want to make candy cane cupcakes just put the candy canes in the frosting!

Oh no! Suck. I wonder how Superdrug ones might work. If they're vegan- they were behind the counter when I was in the other day and it was stupid busy so I couldn't be bothered to ask. What happened to your cakes?

They're not vegan, they have the bad E-numbers! The candy canes in the cakes melted & then solidified at the bottom of the cakes.

Stupid Superdrug! Good to know before I queue up to ask, though! Sorry about your failcakes :(

I couldn't get either of the vegan biscuits from Lidl, I got a packet of the spiced ones before Christmas but put them out at a coffee morning and didn't get to try them. The ginger ones were nowhere to be found, pah!
