Coconut flavoured Icing


  • 50 grams unsalted butter
  • 125 grams best quality dark chocolate broken into small pieces
  • 225 grams icing sugar
  • 100 ml sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • While the cakes are in the oven prepare the icing by mixing together all the ingredients of the icing
  • The original recipe calls for adding golden syrup but I totally gave that a miss
  • Why? Because I had already borrowed some butter, some yogurt, baking powder, and bicarbonate of soda from my very patient neighbour H ;) - yes, yes she did get a large portion of this cake :)
  • Now to ice the cakes place the slightly domed part of one cake face down and slather icing on the flat part and place the other cake flat side down on the icing and then slather icing all over the cake
  • I had some pretty pink and white sugar stars which I used to decorate my cake.
