    I feel like I'm blaspheming against all diet rules but I need a recipe for a cake. It's my 18th birthday on monday and I'm having a dinner party on the friday of the same week and all my friends are expecting a cake of some description or another. They all know I'm on Xenical but I still want to blow out my candles and sit down to a slice with them without experiencing the squiffy effect haha!

    Has anyone got any suggestions?

    Really anything would be amazingly helpful =)

    Umm last year my hubby shoved a candle in a Weight Watchers Belgian choc slice for me? Not quite the same effect as say a big birthday cake, but hey I got no side effects :D

    Hi Starlight

    Love cake too...and birthday cake is important...particularly 18th. If you do a google search for low fat cake recipes there are some you can try, including a fat free sponge...not sure on this one...but if you like carrot cake Deli does a lovely one....

    Your 18th birthday is very important , if I was you take a day off from xenical and just enjoy urself , put it this way when your older and someone asks "how did you spend your 18th?" you want to say I enjoyed myself had a great time and not oh it was ok I was on a diet so couldn't eat what I wanted.
    There's plenty more days to worry about dieting "enjoy urself"!!:)

    Thank you for all the help! I did a bit of a search and found a "Fat Free Chocolate Cake" - it sounds a bit too good to be true but I'm gonna give it a go. And if that doesn't work I'm going to do that shaping WW cakes into the shape of a digital 18 xDDDD

    Well it's in the oven (I am testing it out so I can see if it works ahead of time) so shall report to you all how it tastes etc and whether it tangos or not =) It did look like a real chocolate cake when I went to check on it a moment ago so fingers crossed! There's a lot of sugar in it (to make up for the lack of fat I suppose) and it serves 16 and there are 140 calories in a slice.

    Works like a dream and no tango effect so here's the recipe for you guys! The slices are thin but chunky - very dense cake - to me tastes like chocolate fudge cake minus the sickly icing xDD I had my slice chopped up with hot low fat custard last night - heavenly xD It's only 0g of fat if you only eat 1/16th of it - but 1/16th really is enough! I've got a dustbin rather than a stomach and I couldn't have eaten another bite.

    Ingredients
    Non-Stick cooking spray
    6 ¼ oz flour
    4 oz unsweetened cocoa
    1 ¼ oz cornflour
    1 tsp baking power
    ½ tsp baking soda
    ½ tsp salt
    10 oz sugar
    240ml water
    3 egg whites
    90ml golden syrup
    1 tsp icing sugar

    Directions
    Spray 8-inch circular pan with cooking spray. In large bowl combine flour, unsweetened cocoa, cornflower, baking powder, baking soda & salt. In a medium bowl stir sugar and water until sugar is almost dissolved. Add egg whites and golden syrup; stir until blended. Gradually add to dry ingredients, stirring until smooth. Pour into prepared pan. Bake in Gas Mark 4 oven 70 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack. If desired, sprinkle with icing sugar.

    Each serving provides: 0 g total fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 140 Calories, 2 g protein, 34 g carbohydrate, 160 mg sodium
