You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make

1. Colour the frosting a pale shade of violet. Cover the whole cake in the frosting and use the edge scraper to ensure a smooth finish. Put the cake in the fridge for one hour for the frosting to harden.

Top Tip!…Use a cake turntable to help you get the smooth finish on your frosting.

2. Melt the yellow Candy Melts in the microwave. Stir in a teaspoon of vegetable oil at a time until you achieve a smooth and thick, but runny consistency. Use a teaspoon to drizzle the Candy Melts down the side of the cake, working your way around the top edge of the cake.

Top Tip!…It’s important to get the consistency and the temperature of the Candy Melts just right – not enough oil and it will be too thick to run down the cake. Too warm and it will melt the cake frosting!
