Ingredients

Cake (you can make any kind of cake really but I used chocolate)

  • 220g self-raising flour (sifted)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 220g soft butter or marg
  • 220g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • Butter (for greasing)

Decorations

  • 220g self-raising flour (sifted)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 220g soft butter or marg
  • 220g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • Butter (for greasing)
  • One packet marshmallows
  • I cheated and used shop bought vanilla frosting (2 tubs)
  • 2 different food colourings
  • tiny bit of sunflower oil
  • lego figures (optional)
  • I used flapjacks and rice krispy squares for people who didn't like cake (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 170C and butter (generously) 2 loaf tins.
  • STEP 2
    Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and then add the rest of the ingredients and empty into a magimix or use an electric handwhisk (you can do it by hand but I couldn't be bothered!)
  • STEP 3
    When it is all combined, simply divide into the two loaf tins and bake for around 30 minutes.
  • STEP 4
    Leave on a cooling rack (you can only start icing when it is completely cool.)
  • STEP 5
    Get a pair of clean scissors and rub with a small amount of sunflower oil (this will make the marshmallows not stick)
  • STEP 6
    Cut 16 marshmallows into half, you will only be using the bottom half of each of the marshmallows.
  • STEP 7
    Now mix the food colouring into the icing (obviously 2 seperate bowls for the 2 colours) Ice the cake and then ice the marshmallows and place on top.
  • STEP 8
    Add candles and lego figures. I used some flapjacks and chocolate rice crispy squares for the people at the party who didn't like cake.
