Method

35 mins
 
Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Whisk the egg whites until slightly stiff and set aside. Combine the sugar, egg yolks, salt and oil and blend. Add the remaining ingredients, folding in the egg whites last. Divide the batter between two round baking tins and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn the cakes out onto a wire rack to cool.

To make the icing, combine the icing sugar and cocoa. Slowly add the butter and water, stirring until blended. Sandwich the cakes together with a thin layer of icing. Use the remaining icing to ice the entire cake. Decorate with the flaked Peppermint Crisp™ and green glacé cherries.
