- 2 cups of
- Knob of
- Cocoa (makes it go
- Red and
black food colouring
cake from the supermarket
- 3 Bowls
WHAT TO DO:
the icing into a bowl, add a small knob of melted butter and about a teaspoon
of boiling water and mix well with a knife, keep adding more boiling water 1
teaspoon at a time until it becomes like a paste (Make sure you have an oldie
helping with this step).
2. Now you
need to make the red icing for the writing, so put a small amount into a
separate bowl. Place a few drops of the red food colouring into your plain
icing and stir. Repeat this step using the black food colouring - this will
make your black icing.
3. You will
also need white icing, this is super simple, just the icing sugar and boiling
tip, when spreading on your icing dip your butter knife into hot water, so it
spreads like a dream…
the black icing on to the sponge cake, leaving the centre bit for the white
5. Now you
can start decorate the top, take the licorice twists and tear them into strips,
then wrap them around the top of your cake, lightly pressing them into the cake
icing! This gives it the shiny vinyl like look!
6. Wrap a
strip round the center of your cake, so the colouring doesn’t run into each
other… then add the white icing to the center.
7. Then do
the same again, to make the vinyl hole… add more black icing! Now you can start
writing the name of your record with the red icing!
