      Hi Laura,
      Yes, that would work. In addition to omitting the cocoa powder, you would remove the 4 tablespoons of hot water as well.

      Hi Zahabiya,
      Did you make sure to freeze the design first before pouring the cake batter on it? Also, the decoration paste has to be on the stiff side. Not sure what the consistency of your cake mix is, but it might have been too runny. At least try using the decoration paste recipe to be on the safe side.

      Hi Kathryn,
      I pipe out the letters using a piping bag fitted with a flat icing tip.

  5. Thank you so much for this lovely design idea.
    I’m a home baker/cake decorating enthusiast and always do the leaving/celebration cakes for work and family.

    Could I just check, we don’t have cake flour in UK…does the cake require any raising agents added or does the egg white fulfil that purpose? I am planning to use plain flour with part cornflour to simulate cake flour.

      Hi Kathryn,
      Yes, that’s correct. The meringue is what will give the cake its lift. You can substitute one cup cake flour with one cup all-purpose flour minus 2 tablespoons, replacing the 2 tablespoons with cornstarch. Then sift at least 3 times.
