I made this 8" sponge cake for my son's 13th birthday. As his favourite sweets are liqourice allsorts I decided to incorporate them into a design for his birthday cake. The sweets were easily stuck onto the ends of white wires inserted into a flower pick in the centre of the cake,together with the number 13 in yellow Mexican Paste. The other allsorts are stuck on with softened sugar paste. This is a really simple cake to make but extremely colourful, and could be adapted for other children/people using their favourite sweets.ie. Maltesers or wine gums. I added his name in black Mexican paste using the FMM Funky letters cutters. To finish it I attached a black Happy Birthday ribbon around the square board. All the family are enjoying the cake, but only Owen gets to eat the liqourice allsorts!
