Sprout the Caterpillar Cake

  • RECIPE MAKES: 1 cake
  • PREP TIME: 40 minutes
  • COOK TIME: 12-15 minutes
step 1

Preheat oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas mark 5.

step 2

Grease and line a swiss roll tray. Place Fate Low Protein Chocolate Flavour Cake Mix into a mixing bowl. Add the margarine and the water and using an electric whisk, mix well for 1 minute.

step 3

Pour mixture into swiss roll tray and bake for 12 - 15 mins until risen and firm.

step 4

Remove from oven and immediately turn it out onto a piece of greaseproof paper (the paper that was used to line the tray may still be on the cake, so remove this, and throw it away).

step 5

Spread cake with jam, and whilst it is still hot, gently roll it up, starting at the longest side, using the greaseproof paper to help you.

step 6

Roll up tightly and place it on a wire rack or plate to cool.

step 7

Place the swiss roll on a cake board and trim both ends to neaten.

step 8

Gently spread the chocolate icing or melted Vitabite over the whole of the cake to cover. Grate the Vitabite and sprinkle over the cake.

step 9

Lightly dust work surface with icing sugar. To make the caterpillar face, cut out a circle of the orange icing and gently press onto the front of the swiss roll.

step 10

Add a Skittle for its nose securing using a dab of the cake topping. Make the eyes by cutting out circles from the black and white icing and the eyebrows by rolling out a small strip of black icing, use a dab of water to place these on the face.

step 11

Use the pointed end of a knife to draw the shape of a mouth into the icing.

step 12

For each antenna roll a small amount of red icing narrowing at one end and place on top of the face with a dab of water.

step 13

The caterpillar can then be decorated with Skittles and hundreds and thousands/sprinkles (legs can be added with small strips of red icing if desired).
