Ingredients
  • 14 Asda Pastel Fairy Cake Paper Cases
  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 1 level tsp baking powder
  • 115g unsalted butter, plus 100g for the icing, softened
  • 115 caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Asda Green Natural Food Colouring
  • Sweets, to decorate
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Line two bun trays with the cake cases.

  • Beat together the flour, baking powder, 115g butter, caster sugar, eggs and 1 tbsp of the milk until creamy. Put in the cases. Bake for 20 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.

  • Mix 100g butter with the icing sugar until combined, then add 1 tbsp milk and the vanilla and beat until creamy. Spread one cake with this icing for the face. Colour the rest of the icing green and pipe or spread on the other cakes.

  • Make a face on the cream iced cake with sweets. Make antennae by sticking liquorice allsorts on bits of drinking straw.

  • Put this face cake on top of one of the green iced cakes, then line the rest of the cakes on their sides behind it. Add fizzy cable sweets for legs.
