Merry Christmas, everyone.
- 1 shop-bought rich fruit cake
- Vegetable oil
- 150g boiled fruit sweets
- 500g Tate & Lyle Royal Icing Sugar, sifted
- 5 tablespoons of water
- Edible glitter
Method1 Preheat to oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Put the cake on a board and wrap some ribbon around the edge of the cake.
2 Line on a baking sheet with foil and brush lightly with oil. Unwrap the boiled sweets and put them on the baking sheet.
3 Cook in the oven for 10 minutes until they have melted and run into each other. Leave to cool on the foil, then lift off and snip and pieces into shards.
4 Mix the icing sugar and water together and whisk for 10 minutes.
5 Using a small palette knife, spread the icing over the top of the cake, flicking it into small peaks as you go. Then tease the edges down the sides to form icicles.
6 While the icing is still soft, push the coloured sugar shards into the icing. Leave the cake to dry, sprinkle with edible glitter and serve.
