Pieday Friday ~ Angel delight birthday cake

This week I’m sharing the easiest ever birthday cake recipe along with a fabulous cookbook & mugs giveaway. Okay, you can probably already see that I didn’t really make this cake, I just kind of decorated it but it’s my husband’s favourite dessert from childhood and I knew it would make his birthday even more special if I recreated the cake. It’s super-simple but you won’t believe how delicious it is, and here’s what makes it special: it’s frozen! That’s right, it’s like an inverse arctic roll! The angel delight sets like strawberry ice cream around the outside of the sponge and it’s easy to cut into slices to serve to your guests. Give it a try – I think you’ll like it!

You will need: Swiss roll – you can make your own or buy a big one from the supermarket, angel delight, milk, sprinkles, whisk, spatula, cake board, candles.

I don’t really need to include any steps to make this recipe – just follow the instructions on the packet of strawberry whip and follow the steps in the image above! It’s a fab birthday cake for children (or the young at heart!) and you can even make a chocolate version for Christmas – a true frozen chocolate log! Let me know if you have a go and in the meantime, check out my fabulous baking competition where TWO lucky followers will win..!
