  • Cake mixture

    Mix the sugar, flour, chocolate powder and baking powder in a bowl. Add the milk and cream, stir into the mixture. Spread the cake mixture on the prepared tray in a rectangle of approx. 26 x 32 cm. Bake for approx. 25 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 200°C. Remove from the oven, allow to cool a little, remove from the tin, leave to cool completely on a rack.
  • To cut out the castle

    Cut wide strips (approx. 7 cm) all the way around for the walls. Trim the strips to the right length. Cut a door out of one of the longer strips, set aside. Cut battlements out of the outer edges.
  • To assemble the castle

    Place the base on a cake plate. Attach the walls to the cake with decorating icing. To make the well, cut out small squares from the cut-offs, attach to the cake. Create the path to the castle using the remaining cut-offs.
  • To decorate

    Attach the almonds and gummy bears to the castle using decorating icing. Use drawing paper and a wooden skewer to make a flag, insert into the castle.
  • Note:

    Decorating icing is a sugar glaze that comes in a tube and is the perfect consistency for attaching decorations. Alternatively, make thick icing: approx. ½ tbsp of water for every 60 g of icing sugar.
