World cake-in-a Cup
Inspired by fab flag mugs from Moonpig.com, it only one meant thing…an Italy vs England World cake-in-a Cup re-match! Using Sainsbury’s cake-in-a-cup recipe as the base, will my country-inspired additions make it a new winning recipe or as disappointing as an own goal?
To kick off, I start with a risky decision and take out solid performer; Vanilla Extract and for England add 2tsp Pimms and 2 Chopped Strawberries. For Italy, I add 2tsp Limoncello – possibly a disastrous choice or it could be a touch of magic for the mix. Just before kick-off (before putting in the microwave), I top off team Italia with 1 fine Lemon Slice.
When the England team think they’re finished we’ll top them off with a fresh strawberry. Both teams will get a good shower of icing sugar before the next round.
England: Not a great looker – a bit lumpy and bumpy, but Chopped Strawberries added a whole new dimension to the game.
Italy: Rose to the occasion perfectly, an extremely slick performance, however Limoncello could have been slightly stronger up front.
