You will need

To decorate

  • sugarpaste: pink, white, blue, green, purple, yellow
  • sprinkles of your choice

Equipment

  • 4cm (1.5in) circular cookie cutter
  • mini palette knife
  • bulb tool
  • water and paintbrush

Instructions

1
Roll out each of the sugarpaste colours to the thickness of a £1 coin, then cut out one of each colour and four in white.
2
Stack the circles, layering one white circle between each colour and sticking them together with water.
3
Roll the tower gently to blend the sugarpaste together slightly.
4
Take the bulb tool and give texture to the coloured sugarpaste layers to create a sponge-like texture with little holes.
5
Carefully cut a slice out of the cake with the palette knife. Roll small balls of white sugarpaste, then paint a circle of water around the top of the cake and stick them on top.
6
Paint the circles of sugarpaste with a dot of water and attach sprinkles of choice.
7
Take 2 colours of sugarpaste and roll into tubes. Attach together at one end and twist gently, then trim accordingly. Leave to dry for 30 minutes. Shape a small ball of yellow sugarpaste into a teardrop shape.
8
Make a small dent in the top of the cake in the centre, then brush on some water and attach the candle upright.
9
Paint the end of the candle with water, then attach the yellow flame to finish.
