make a giant custard cream cake


For fans of the biscuit (and fans of massive cakes).

Calling all biscuit aficionados: the cake of your dreams is here. And you can make it, too – assuming you’re a fan of custard creams and are inclined to spend a little more time in the kitchen than you would if you were bashing out a packet cake. This doozy will require some careful fondant placement (in order to create the bickie logo and swirly bits), but something tells us it’d be a hell of a lot of fun. Oh, and it’s made from Victoria sponge with custardy filling, so you know – bloody get it in your gobs. Scoot over to Icing Insight for all the instructions (or just to look at the pics).This story was originally published on June 20th, 2018.

To accompany you while you embark on your next culinary quest, we’ve cooked up some lovely kitchen merch, including three colourful tea towels and a flower-power apron. Find the lot over at the frankie shop.
