300 ml (250 g) caster sugar


5 eggs

446 ml (250 g) cake flour

pinch of salt

15 ml (1 T) baking powder

10 ml (2 t) vanilla essence

125 ml (½ c) boiled milk, cooled until lukewarm

red and green or yellow food colouring


250 ml (1 c) icing sugar

40 g STORK

5-10 ml warm milk of water

Food colouring

Edible gold dust

Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease a 22 cm round cake tin and dust with flour.


Put the caster sugar and STORK BAKE in a bowl and beat with an electric beater until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one by one, beating well after each addition.

Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder 3 or 4 times and add to the egg mixture, alternating with the milk and beating well.

Divide the mixture in two. Add a few drops of red food colouring to one half to colour it pink and a few drops of green or yellow food colouring to the other part.

Beat well.

Drop alternating spoonfuls of the two batters into the cake tin.

Swirl lightly with a skewer to give a marbled look.

Bake the cake for 30 minutes or until done (a skewer inserted in the middle should come out clean).

Turn out onto a wire rack to cool and cut into squares.


Mix together the icing sugar, Stork and some of the milk or water.

Add some food colouring and mix until well blended.

Spoon the butter icing into a piping bag and ice the squares.

Garnish with edible gold dust.
