Preparation Time30 MINUTES

Cooking Time20-25 MINUTES

Resting Time0 MINUTES

Serves12

LevelMedium


ingredients

Equipment:

12 cup mini sandwich tin

Ingredients:

½ quantity Super Glam Party Cake recipe

300ml whipping cream

6-8 tbsp strawberry or raspberry jam

100g prosecco frosting 

few droplets pink food colouring

Dried rose petals, to decorate

Edible gold leaf, to decorate

1

Make the cake batter using instructions for the Super Glam Party Cake. Grease the mini sandwich tins with plenty of soft butter.

2

Divide the mixture between the cake tins, about 2/3 full, as you don’t want the spilling over in the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Leave to cool on a wire rack.

3

Whip the cream to soft peaks and place in piping bag fitted with a star nozzle. Beat the prosecco frosting in a bowl with the pink food colouring, adding a drop at a time to achieve the desired colour. Add a touch of water if it seems too thick.

4

Trim the domed tops off the individual cakes using a bread knife to make them straight, (discard or nibble!). Cut the trimmed cakes in half. Spread jam on the lower layer of the cake and then pipe the cream in small blobs all on top of the cream. Place the base of the cake on top to make a sandwich.

5

Use a spoon to place a spoonful of the icing on the top of the cake. Using the back of the spoon, press lightly to spread the icing out evenly on the top, don’t let it come off the sides, you want it just to rest on top. Repeat with the remaining cakes until used up.

6

Decorate the tops with dried petals and edible gold leaf. Serve.
