I'm not Daniel obviously but here's my take on this. The plan is flexible. If you don't like cream, have coconut oil or even another fat source. I had olive oil in whey for the first 6months or so.

You could go for bananas instead of dextrose PWO. Probably only need 1 spotty, over ripe one.

The reason that SOME junk food works well is that it's high sugar. It spikes the insulin high but more importantly it clears the system quicker. As you sleep you produce growth hormone. Insulin inhibits this so you want all of the food, ie: carbs clear of your system. You can do it with lower GI carbs that are "healthier" just be aware of the timings and don't eat straight before bed.

Have a look through Vinnie Dizenzo's log and Q&A on EliteFTS. He runs backloading but does it mostly without junk food. He has some solid recommendations. I will try to find some links for you later. Any more questions, let me know. Overall you can definitely make it work for you. There are very few rules, mostly just guidelines.
