Create these easy-to-make treats with our silicone baking moulds and decorate with an assortment of sweets for a fun activity for the little ones.

1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan/ gas mark 4. Spoon the cake mixture into greased cake moulds (there will be enough for 2 batches). Bake for 14–18 minutes, then leave to cool.

2. Meanwhile, mash the raspberries through a sieve into a pan and simmer the juice. Stir frequently for 15 minutes until reduced to a thick paste. Leave to cool.

3. Dust a clean surface with icing sugar. Weigh out half of the ready-to-roll icing and knead in spoonfuls of raspberry paste until pink, then roll out to 3mm thick. Roll out the remaining white icing to the same thickness.

4. Brush the tops and sides of the cakes with apricot jam and cover with either the pink or white icing, trimming the edges and pressing down lightly to create detail.

5. Decorate the cakes with icing trimmings and sweets, sticking them on with a paste made from 1 tbsp icing sugar and 1 tsp water.
