I decided to share my World Harmony Cake with you all today and send my LOVE and STRENGTH to all.

The cake is a marble butter cake using different colours to represent all the colours of the beautiful people in the world. I used tiny gingerbread folk around the outside of the cake holding hands, in the middle is a stencil of all the different cultures and people of the world coming together in peace and harmony and this is what I pray and wish for – world peace.


Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 125 g butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour, sifted

  • food colouring, (use as many colours as you like)
  • For the butter cream icing:
  • 185g butter, softened
  • 2 1/4 cups icing sugar mixture
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • Packet Gingerbread men, for decoration

Method
