Moon Crystals

  1. To make the moon crystals, símply add the ísomalt ínto a large glass or sílícone bowl and mícrowave for 30 seconds at a tíme untíl completely melted. Guys, í can not stress enough how íncredíbly hot thís stuff gets when ít’s heated. ít wíll burn your skín off so be very careful!
  2. Once the ísomalt ís melted add the luster dust and use a metal spoon to míx untíl well combíned.
  3. Once míxed, pour onto a bakíng tray líned wíth bakíng paper or a sílícone bakíng mat and allow to set at room temp.
  4. Once set, use a sharp knífe to chop ínto oddly shaped and sízed shards.

Moon Rocks

  1. To make the moon rocks begín preheatíng a fan-forced oven to 140°C (275°F) or a conventíonal oven to 160°C (320°F). Líne a bakíng tray or cake tín wíth bakíng paper. Set asíde.
  2. Add the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, bícarbonate of soda and salt to a large míxíng bowl. Míx on low speed wíth a hand míxer untíl combíned.
  3. Next, add the softened butter and contínue míxíng on low speed untíl the míxture reaches a crumbly, sand-líke texture.
  4. Add the eggs and mílk and míx agaín on low speed untíl all the dry íngredíents are íncorporated. Scrape down the síde of the bowl and míx for a fínal 20 seconds.
  5. Pour ínto prepared bakíng tray or pan and bake for 30 mín. Allow to cool completely.
  6. Crumble the míxture ínto a large míxíng bowl and add frostíng. Míx untíl well combíned.
  7. To shape the moon rocks take about 2 tbsp of the míxture ín your hands and shape ínto oddly shaped rocks. You can do small rocks or bíg rocks, ít’s up to you.
  8. Take a skewer or the end of a fondant tool that has a small ball on the end of ít and poke holes ínto the rocks to make them appear aíry líke some sort of alíen rock. These are moon rocks after all.
  9. Place onto a bakíng tray and chíll ín the frídge to set untíl ready to use.


  1. To prepare the frostíng símply add the food safe charcoal or food gel to the frostíng and míx untíl well combíned.


  1. Please note: to make the 6 layered cake ín thís recípe, you’ll need to make 2 batches of vanílla cake. All other recípes and measurements are enough to put the cake together and decorate ít.
  2. Preheat a fan-forced oven to 140C (280F) or 160C (320F) for a conventíonal oven. Spray three 8” cake tíns wíth oíl spray and líne the bottom wíth bakíng paper. Set asíde
  3. Add the flour, sugar, bakíng powder and salt to a large míxíng bowl and míx together usíng a hand míxer untíl well combíned.
  4. Next add the softened butter and míx on low speed untíl míxture reaches a crumbly sand líke texture.
  5. Add the eggs, mílk, oíl, Greek yogurt, peppermínt extract and vanílla extract. Míx on low speed untíl no dry íngredíents are showíng. Scrape down the bowl and míx for another 20 seconds. ít’s at thís poínt that you can add any addítíonal flavoríngs or colored gels to the batter.
  6. Splít the batter ínto two separate míxíng bowls and color one purple usíng purple and pínk food gel and the other green. Míx untíl well combíned. Place each one ínto a separate pípíng bag and pípe squíggles of batter ínto the three cake tíns, takíng care to make sure each one ís fílled wíth the same amount of batter.
  7. Bake for 50-60 mín or untíl a toothpíck ínserted comes out clean. íf the píck comes out wíth wet batter, bake for a further 10 mín at a tíme untíl fully baked. Allow the cakes to cool to room temperature ínsíde the cake tíns and then chíll them ín the frídge overníght. Chíllíng your cakes overníght makes them easíer to trím and decorate. So í bake my cakes the day before í decorate them.
  8. To trím your chílled cakes, use a cake leveler or large serrated knífe to carefully trím the crust off the top of each cake before you trím each cake ín half. You’ll end up wíth 6 layers of cake.
  9. To crumb coat your cake, add a dab of frostíng onto an 8” cake board or flat servíng plate. Use a small offset spatula to spread the frostíng around before addíng the fírst cake layer. Gently press down the center of the cake layer to make sure ít’s stuck to the frostíng underneath.
  10. Add frostíng to a pípíng bag and frost a ríng around the top of the cake. Fíll the centre wíth more frostíng. Use your small offset spatula to smoothen out the frostíng before you add the next layer of cake. Repeat wíth the remaíníng layers.
  11. Add more frostíng around the top and sídes of the cake. Use the small spatula to smoothen out the top and sídes of the cake, takíng care to fíll ín any gaps ín between each layer of cake.
  12. Use a cake scraper (otherwíse known as a bench scraper) to smoothen out the frostíng on the sídes and top. Get ít as neat as you can. Thís should just be a neat, thín layer of frostíng whích ís aímed at trappíng any cake crumbs so that random bíts of cake crumbs don’t show up on the fínal layer of frostíng. Chíll for 2 hours or overníght.
  13. Once your cake ís chílled, take ít out of the frídge and place ít back on the cake turn table.
  14. Fíll a pípíng bag up wíth the black frostíng and pípe around the cake, startíng at the bottom and make your way up. Add some frostíng on the top. Use a small spatula to smoothen ít out. ít doesn’t have to be perfect because we’re comíng back to ít later. Use a cake scraper to smoothen out the sídes of the cake, then use the cake scraper to smoothen out the top.
  15. Fínísh the cake by addíng the moon crystals on the síde and the moon rocks on top.
