Ingredients
  • 12 Asda Fairy Cakes
  • 175g Asda Low Cal Strawberry Flavour Jelly Pot
  • 200g Asda Vanilla Flavour Frosting
  • You will also need Asda Piping Bag & Nozzle Set
Method
  • Use a sharp knife to cut an upside-down shallow cone out of the centre of each cake. Slice the pointed end off each cone so you’re left with a thin lid.

  • Tip the jelly into a bowl and stir to loosen. Use some of the jelly to fill each cake hole, then replace the lids.

  • Fit the piping bag with the round nozzle and fill with the frosting.

  • Pipe a line down the centre of each cake, then pipe a swirled ‘brain’ pattern on each side of the line. Chill in the freezer for 30 mins.

  • Put the remaining jelly in a pan and heat over a low heat, stirring occasionally until slightly thinned. Glaze the top of the cakes with the jelly, filling any gaps. Chill in the fridge for 20 mins or until required.
