Prepare your cake & create a 'Drizzle' look

Bake your lemon drizzle cake using the fancy ring tin and allow to cool completely before decorating.

Place on the 12" cake board and mix the lemon icing mix with some water to a fairly thick consistency, and colour a pale lemon. Pour over cake to drizzle down the sides and allow to set.

Make The Flowers

Colour sections of the modelling paste in various Spring colours and create sugar flowers of your choice using the Cake Star plunger cutters.

To Make Eggs

Melt candy buttons and brush into egg moulds, neaten around the edge and leave to set. Brush in a second coat and leave to set. Remove from moulds. Repeat process to make enough halves for 6 eggs. Fix the halves together with a little of the melted buttons. Colour by painting with Colour Splash paints. Allow to dry.

Add mini eggs to complete the look if desired.
