I use this recipe with year 10’s. They make a batch in pairs and divide the mixture between 2 10cm tins. We use steamed sponge pudding tins, as they are small and don’t require long in the oven. You can get Simpsons sponge tins from Morrisons, but historically we used Heinz (can’t find them in the shops).
The pupils then have half a lesson marzipaning the cakes, half a lesson flat icing and then just before Christmas we put on santa hats, listen to Christmas music and decorate them. We have a competition that the staff judge to choose the top 3 cakes.
The kids love it, brings back some old Christmas traditions as well as teaching them finishing techniques.
It's good to leave some feedback.
