One shall have her cake

Happy Jubilee weekend!

In true Diamond Jubilee spirit, I have put my DIY baking/decorating skills to the test. While some may have their bunting hanging, my kitchen has been brightened up by this gem. A classic victoria sponge inside, my Union Jack cake is enough to get me in a celebratory mood.

To make the topping, I bought a block of ready-to-roll icing (around £2) and a red and blue food colouring (two for £3). First I kneaded the icing until soft and then added a drop of the desired colour and kneaded until evenly spread – very messy! Once you have your colours, you are ready to roll (get it?). Why not see what you can create?
