Bake your cake layers in advance so they are cooled and ready to stack. We alternated with chocolate and vanilla packet mix cakes

Cover your cake tray with two overlapping sheets of baking paper. You’ll then be easily able to pull the sheets apart for a neat presentation. You’re welcome!

Whip store bought butter cream to fluff it up and make a little go a long way

Add a few drops of flavour to your butter cream. We used bubble-gum for the purple

Always spread a thin layer of butter cream to coat those crumbs before your final presentation layer

Make chocolate shards to top your cake! They’re easier to make than your think!

Elle’s Crazy Coloured Chocolate Shards
– Melt white chocolate melts in 3 small containers in the microwave
– Add food colouring (oil or powder works best with chocolate)
– Spoon the coloured blobs next to eachother on baking paper
– Use a chopstick to swirl the colours together
– Sprinkle candies, edible confetti, pearls, bananas, eyeballs… whatever you like!
– Cool in fridge for 15 minutes until set
– Smash it up or slice even shards

Melt equal parts of white chocolate and heavy cream, with a few drops of food dye, to drip yummy ganache all over and help stick your decorations on!
