This is a guest post by work experience student Jessica.
Killer python snake lollies are long stretchy multicoloured snake shaped chewy gummy lollies. The lolly is chewy sweet and has different flavours for the separate colours from apple to lemon. There are many recipes using these killer pythons inluding the science experiment cake, green sludge spiders and the wizards cauldron cake (found below).
Pythons are sold individually and they contain glucose syrup (wheat or corn), cane sugar, thickener(wheat), gelatine, food
acid (citric acid), flavours, colours. They are made on equipment that also processes products containing milk powder so are
suitable for nut free dietary conastraints/choices.

Science Experiment Cake
You’ll need a 15cm cardboard cake board, a 33cm covered MDF round cake board, plus a torch.
250g butter, softened
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup plain flour
1 cup milk
30 gummi bears
1 litre lemonade
1/4 cup powdered gelatine
10 red jelly frogs
5 blue jelly snakes
250g butter, softened
3 cups icing sugar mixture
2 tablespoons milk
Green gel food colouring
Make Radioactive jelly: Grease an 8-cup capacity metal pudding steamer with oil. Heat lemonade in a saucepan over
medium heat for 3 minutes or until warm. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Sprinkle over gelatine. Whisk until dissolved.
Strain gelatine mixture into prepared pudding steamer. Cover. Refrigerate for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until thick and
syrupy. Add frogs and snakes. Cover. Refrigerate overnight to set.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Grease two 6cm deep, 20cm (base) round cake pans. Line bases and
sides with baking paper.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each
addition. Add half the flours. Stir to combine. Add half the milk. Stir to combine. Repeat with remaining flours and milk.
Divide mixture between prepared cake pans. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre of cakes comes out
clean. Stand in pans for 10 minutes. Turn cakes onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Make Buttercream icing: Using an electric mixer, beat butter until pale and fluffy. Gradually add icing sugar mixture and
milk, beating constantly until combined. Tint green with food colouring.
Place 1 cake on large MDF cake board. Spread top with 1?2 cup icing. Top with remaining cake. Spread top and side of cakes
with icing. Place cardboard cake board on top of pudding steamer. Turn out jelly. Place jelly, on board, onto cake. Using the
picture as a guide, place gummi bears around edge of cake. Place a lit torch behind cake. Serve.
Place 2 scoops of ice-cream into 4 tall glasses. Top up with soft drink.
Arrange 1 orange and 1 green snake lolly in the frothy top of each drink. Serve immediately.
Make jelly, following packet directions. Pour into a 20cm (base) round dish. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours to set.
Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line base of a 20cm (base) round cake pan.
Make cake: Prepare cake, following packet directions. Before pouring mixture into cake pan, fold through sprinkles (this
gives a magical coloured effect once cake is cut). Bake as directed. Stand in pan for 10 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack to
Place cake, right side up, on a platter. Using a serrated knife, trim top off cake to create a flat surface. Spoon jelly on top of
cake. Press cachous into frogs to form eyes. Decorate cake with snakes and frogs.
