Ingredients 8
Servings 6
Time 25 MIN


  • 200
    butter, softened
  • 375
    caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 500
    self-raising flour
  • 400
    vanilla icing
  • 300
    sour candy strips
  • 145
    chocolate cookies
  • 1 box colourful sweets


20 MIN

Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Line two 18 cm cake pans.

1 Cream the butter and sugar together until pale. Beat in the eggs. Sift over the flour and fold in using a large metal spoon.

2 The mixture should have a dropping consistency. If it doesn’t, add a little milk. Divide the mixture between the cake pans and gently spread out with a spatula. Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before turning on to a wire rack to cool.

3 Sandwich your two cake layers together using the vanilla icing and cover the sides and top of the cake.

4 Stick sour candy strips around the outside, packing them close to each other. Trim with scissors.

5 At the front of the cake, trim the candy strips and cake so it looks like some of it has been dug away.

6 Crush the cookies to look like rubble. Sprinkle the rubble in the middle of the cake. Decorate with sweets and toy trucks.
