Recipe of Lambeth earth colours cake


Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C).


Prepare 250 g FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake Deluxe as indicated on the package. Grease the baking pan with FunCakes Bake Release Spray and spatula the batter into it. Bake the cookie for about 30-35 minutes until done and immediately after baking, dump onto a cake rack and let cool completely.


Prepare 200 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream as directed on the package. Season the buttercream with the FunCakes Flavor paste Malaga.


Cut the sponge cake with the cake saw 2x and fill with the malaga buttercream. Place some soaked raisins on each layer of buttercream. Coat the entire outside with a thin layer of buttercream and let set in the refrigerator.


Colour a few tablespoons of buttercream with the FunCakes Food Color Gel Red Earth and spread it all around the cake.


Divide the rest of the buttercream into 4 portions and colour this with the remaining 4 FunCakes Food Colours Gels. Put the buttercream colours in decorating bags with couplers and different decorating tips. The 6B tip goes into a decorating bag without a coupler.


With decorating tip #103, make the garland in arcs along the cake. Hold the thick part of the tip up and move the tip back and forth a little while swirling. This will create a bit of a ruffle.


With #6B make a shell border on top of the cake and at the bottom. Use the other tips to further decorate the cake as desired.

The couplers make it easy to change tips and colours. Just unscrew the coupler, remove the tip and put another tip on it. This way you can make different decorations with the same colour of cream.
