Recipe for Humpty Dumpty Cake

  • Ingredients
  • 3 level tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 large eggs
  • 75g butter
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 350g flour
  • 300ml sugar
  • Half teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Half cup milk

Instructions

Bake in a 350 oven in a 8’x2’ pan for 40 minutes. Allow to stand for five minutes before turning out on wire trays to cool.

When cooled down, cut in half, sandwich together with chocolate frosting and when frosting has hardened slightly stand the cake on its side. Alternatively, if a larger cake is required bake two mixtures and make a ‘four-decker’ wall.

Frost the cake with remainder of chocolate frosting. Pipe the ‘mortar’ or divisions of the bricks with white frosting.

To Make Humpty Dumpty Cake

1. Buy a large Easter Egg. Put humpty dumpty on top, secured with a little frosting.

2. Use rolled out marshmallows for ears and one miniature marshmallow for a nose. Attach them with toothpicks.

3. Add the cut marshmallow cut side down for the eyes. Pipe a dot of frosting and attach the junior mints as the pupils.

4. Microwave the fruit chews. Roll the red fruit chews into a 6 inch long rope for the mouth. Add the red rope to the mouth.

5. Frost the flat sides and push part of a taffy apple stick into one half then gently press halves together.

6. Press second half onto stick as you do.

7. Cut off a slice of resulting egg so humpty dumpty can sit.

8. Push taffy apple stick up into each half of egg then very gently push egg and two sticks down into wall.

9. Flatten the tops of the ‘thighs’ and place legs in position on the cake.

10. If you want him to have arms, make them the same way as the legs and secure them to the body with a small bit of sticky tape.
