Celebrate the Olympic Games with a cheerful Olympics
It's easy to make your own Olympics-themed cake with George Wilkinson premium quality baking equipment.
Preheat your oven around 280 degrees C / gas mark 4. Then, put all your sponge ingredients into a large bowl, mixing them together using an electric whisk.
Pour your mixture into a large George Wilkinson premium bakeware baking pan and place it in the oven until it is golden brown - for around 15-25 minutes with frequent checking.
After allowing it to cool, ideally on a wire rack, cut five circles out from your sponge. Allow for icing mishaps and cut a couple of extra rings. Cut a hole in the centre of each circle using a small knife.
In order to make your icing, first use an electric mixer for beating the butter until a creamy texture. Then, beat in your icing sugar followed by enough milk to create a smooth paste.
Once the icing is reasonably runny, it will be ready. This makes coating your sponge cake much easier.
Next, divide your mixture into five colours, using cocoa on one and the other four with the food colourings.
Each ring should be spread with two thirds of icing. of each icing colour. It makes it much easier to hold each ring in the centre, first coating the sides and placing it on a flat surface for the top. After letting it cool in the fridge for 30 minutes, put a second layer on for a smooth finish.
Arrange the rings the same as the symbol - with the top row blue, black and red and the bottom row yellow and green. If you are really keen, you could make them intersecting.
