Birthday Cake Kit instructions:
YOU WILL NEED:
1 1/2 metric cups (375ml) tap water
1/2 metric cup (125ml) vegetable oil
one 20 cm round baking tin or cake tin of your desired shape.
1: Combine the packet of MIX & BAKE – Easy – Peasy! ® cake mix with water & oil in a large bowl or the bowl of your mixing machine. Mix to form a fairly smooth pourable mixture, adding additional plain flour or water if necessary.
2: Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 20cm round cake tin (or alternative shape tin of an equivalent size – the mixture should only 1/2 fill the tin.)
3: Bake in a preheated 180°C oven for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Test by putting a skewer into the centre of the cake. If it comes out clean then the cake is ready. Cool upside down on a wire rack.
1: Melt the carob buds in a microwave proof jug & heat on the lowest setting for approx 8 minutes. Take out, stir & return to the microwave for approx 3 minutes on the lowest setting.
2: Place the cake onto baking paper with the smoothest side to the top. Carefully pour the melted carob over the top of the cake. You can smooth the topping with a palette knife dipped in very hot water if necessary.
3: Leave the topping to set whilst melting the yoghurt drops in a microwave safe jug for approx 5 minutes on the lowest setting. Stir & return to the microwave for approx 3 minutes on the lowest setting.
4: Pour the melted yoghurt into the piping bag included in the kit. Carefully snip off a small section of the tip of the bag. Pipe your message onto the cake. You can practice the writing on some grease proof paper & then remelt the yoghurt when you are ready to write on the cake. You can add your own sprinkles, jelly beans or other decorating that your dog might like.
5: Celebrate with your dog!
