Ingredients

  • Packet of flavoured laces
  • Packet of Skittles

Buttercream icing

Step 1

Get your oven nice and hot, fan ovens should be set to (180°C/160°C). Grease a cake pan – preferably one that is nice and deep,  7cm deep with a 23cm base is perfect. For best results, use a square pan.

Step 2

Make your cake mixture (use a recipe such as this one). Place your mixture into the greased pan that you prepared earlier.

Step 3

Start making the icing. If available use an electric mixer to give the butter a beating until it fades in colour. Little by little you should add the icing sugar and milk to the mixture, continuing to beat all the while.

Step 4

Once the cakes are baked make sure they have a good level surface – if required, you can cheat a little by using a bread knife! Place the rocket template, provided by Rocket Bingo onto the cake. Secure it in place using cocktail sticks. Use a sharp knife to gently cut around the template – be careful not to chop of your rocket fins!

Step 5

Use a ladle to place around half a cup of your icing into a bowl. Add the red food colouring. You should then tint the remainder grey.

Step 6

Use the picture as a guide and ice your cake as neatly as possible! The sweets can be used as decoration for final effect!
