I followed the recipe but the cake part turned out a little thinner than I would have liked (I think my brownie pan was the larger than the recipe called for). Mmmm, what to do? I cut the cake in two and sandwiched both pieces together, using raspberry jam, then coated the whole thing with icing, jam and coconut as per the recipe. It looked great and tasted delicious. I think the surprising part of this cake is that there is melted marshmallows in the icing. This is a cake for those with a sweet-tooth.
Whilst we're on the subject of biscuits, here's another biscuit which I also like for little girls parties. Although, I must confess that I didn't make these. A Mum who is a neighbough of mine made these tea-cup biscuits for her daughter's party. Aren't they cute? And the best part is that there's no cooking required, you just put all the bits together.
Tea-Cup Biscuit Recipe
A tic toc biscuit for the base or plate.
A Marshmallow for the cup
A musk flavoured lifesaver cut in half for the cup handle
A freckle for the "tea" on top of the marshmallow.
All stuck together with a simple paste of icing sugar and water.
